What I meant is that when you select an item, between mouse down and
mouse up, the item gets a border. Before the border used to be two
horizontal lines, since the morph didn't end in sight.

I have nothing to do with that in particular, that's Eddie's idea and
implementation (though I'm including it in my changesets). You get to
see the point of my changes only if you either patch MessageSet (or some
other list browser) to use a factory, or read the code changes. It has
no effect on default behavior.
This should also allow trivial implementation of many other gui tricks,
like icons in lists, stuff like the CDT package does, and so forth.

That's something :-)

I'm staying away from SHLMs for now, I want to finish the closer PLM
