Could you elaborate? This sounds exactly like the things I wanted to 
hear when I started this. To me it looks like a MVC design that *almost* 
works transparently if you already have menu item handling code.

In fact, it works pretty much like a menu, just that it's 
user-configurable. You create toolbar items/menu items you validate 
them, you assign them a name and an action and a tool tip...

Is it that the OS asks you to create items and from then on you don't 
control? Is it how custom views in toolbar items are handled? Is it that 
NSWindow keeps a pointer to its toolbar though it could just be yet 
another NSView to which you connect an outlet?

Curiously,
