It appears to faster than the OmniBrowser.  I see a noticeable lag from
initiating an action to seeing the results of that action.  Next, it has
better clarity in regards to the menu selections.  For example,

RB:  "Create accessors for instance varibales"

OB:  "accessors for instvar"

The RB provides an easier to understand menu in this regard.  On the other
hand, it's not clear what it does until you play with it.  For example, when
I see "accessors for instvar", I'm thinking that it would simply return a
list of the accessors for the selected instance variable.  Should creating
and accessing mean the same thing in this context?  In short, please spell
out the menu item entries instead of using these abbreviations and be clear
as to what it does with its name.

Damien, I'll work with the OB but I'll be refactoring the names of the menu
items especially the one:

"undo a CreateAccessorsForVariableRefacoring"
