You can add more interior morphs to do this. For a forced 2 column display, 
you can do this:

	MyMorph (table, left-to-right, no wrap)
		column1 (table, top-to-bottom, no wrap)
			other morphs
		column2 (table, top-to-bottom, no wrap)
			other morphs

Andreas made a very nice Active Essay about the layouts. It's on SqueakMap.

There are two browser views, and a preference to add another column of 
category hierarchy (browserShowsPackagePane or something like that).
