I think we need at least a little bit of functionality in the old  
browser: I *need* to see if a method comes from a trait, and I need  
the ability
to see which of the many copies in the "implementors" list is the  
original. I already nearly destroyed my image by making a change
to a method in Behavoir, resulting in a copy, thus having that change  
not in Traits objects, thus breaking compilation of methods in Traits...

I think we don't need much in the standard browser, just some hint  
"this is a method from a Trait" and then, when doing "alt-m" a hint
"this is the one true original method".
