Well, even if it works like this in IB on OS4.2 I still
find it non-intuitive :-).

I think it would be better to have two menu items.
When you click on one you see, or should see the 
action/outlet appear and the focus should be on
the newly created `thing'.  

Also, I think that a Class inspector, where you
can create delete outlets/actions would
also be a nice addition.  I feel it is more in line
with the philosophy of Gorm.  You create something,
select something, and can view/edit the object in
the Inspector.  

But well, were is time when you need it :-(.
