Have a look at PDAMorph, and the classes that are in the same category.
Also, EToyHierarchicalTextMorph would make a fine widget for a
outlining app. At least, I plan on using it for my Notes app.

I'm working on the same things myself, as a part of Dynapad
(http://spe.sf.net).  I've already modified PDAMorph to be split into 4
seperate apps (Notes, Dates, Names, Todo), rather than one giant window.
It's far from perfect, but it's somewhat usable for my 'real world' use.

I plan on releasing my code and the image I'm using on my iPAQ hopefully
tommorow, so keep your eyes open. :)
