There was, in fact, an NSToolbar in OPENSTEP, it was part of a private
framework for NeXT only.   I fired up my turbo recently and did an "nm -a" on
the NeXTApps.framework, to see if my memory served correctly, and got the
following result:

19002c9a t -[NSToolBar adjustToolBarToWindow:]
19002b14 t -[NSToolBar buttonAtIndex:]
19002a96 t -[NSToolBar buttonWithName:]
19003230 t -[NSToolBar localizedHelpString:]
19002986 t -[NSToolBar setSnapToButtons:]
19002ba8 t -[NSToolBar toolBarAction:]
19002a3c t -[NSToolBar validateToolBarButton:]
190029ca t -[NSToolBar validateToolBar]
190028b6 t -[NSToolBar viewWillMoveToWindow:]

So, there indeed was an NSToolbar in OPENSTEP, but it was not available to you
and me.   I imagine that there were also corresponding changes in NSWindow for
the view as well, but I don't know for sure.
