 just played with NSToolbar for the first time. Felt like back home in 
MacOS X ;-)

 I always kind of preferred the "OpenStep Toolbar look". E.g. like 
GNUMail.app's "Preferences" window has it. Basically, it's simply a 
scrolling NSMatrix of pushbuttons there, but I understand that such a 
look doesn't go too well with custom views (like the popup menu in 
ToolbarExample.app, which would then be a popup button on top of a 
pushbutton then), so I can understand why it looks like Apple's design 

 However, what I think is kind of awkward is the "chevron" with its 
popup menu that is shown when there's not enough room to show some 
items. Wouldn't a scrollbar be more user-friendly here?

 Finally, I noticed that GNUstep's toolbar doesn't yet support MacOS X 
10.3's setSelectedItemIdentifier: method. Is anyone working on that, or 
should I try to have a go at it?
