RFC: Removal of Gorm's outline view class editor

As just about anyone who's used Gorm knows, the outline view can be used to
edit classes.   This is a feature which was present in IB on OPENSTEP and
NeXTSTEP, so it was felt as though this would help people make the transition
from those systems to GNUstep.

Gorm also has a class inspector, which is more in-line with the OPENSTEP
"inspector" paradigm.  It is complete and it allows you to edit any aspect of
the class, just as the outline view editor does.

This has been suggested a number of times before by different people both on
the list and in #gnustep, but I haven't had time to take it out.   The
intention is to simply have a regular outline view or a browser which would
allow the user to look at the classes and use the class inspector to edit the
outlets and actions of the class.

There are advantages to doing this:

1) It's more in-line with the OPENSTEP paradigm
2) It simplifies the code in Gorm


1) People who've gotten used to the convenience of using the classes view
editor will have to switch to the outline view (this is the other major reason
why I haven't done this).

Please let me know your thoughts on this.   

Thanks, GJC
