I uploaded three packages to the inbox for review. These add a
couple of hooks to ToolBuilder to teach an action button to react
to "changed: #contents" notifications from a browser, and to allow
showing a visual cue that distinguishes a menu activation button
from an action button. As implemented here, the look and behavior
is similar to pre-toolbuilder Squeak (although a nice graphical
icon in the button would be a nicer visual cue than the old square
versus rounded corners cue, help welcome here).

Comments and review appeciated, and if no objections I'll move
this to trunk a few days from now.
