I think I can give some clarifications on these points. In general,
the goal of the initial version of OB is to reproduce the existing
Squeak browsers in a nice and extensible way. The main goal is not to
build different browsers. In the future this will certainly change.

The OB extensions of David Röthlisberger allow multi-selection:

The OB extensions of Roel Wuyts implement that:

There are many extensions that do exactly that. One of those is
OBTesting by Stefan Reichhart:

Juraj Kubelka did a tree column for the traits integration:

It is possible to order and group menus easily, as well as to create sub-menus.
