As to outgoing links (and incoming links) there is another aspect, not sure of the buzzword, that relates to themes and link relavancy. Hence the mixed reviews of links popularity programs. Links pop works well on Google for example, relavent links works better with AV. The links are evaluated for quantity AND relavance (quality).
If you open your new window using the target="_blank" option in a standard href tag, the spiders will follow the link just fine. If you use a script, some nonHTML method, it will depend on the method.
