I also like such a "print-out" view of a class sometimes. More generally, 
being able to see a set of user-selectable methods very conveniently would 
be really nice.
- "Convenient" might mean simultaneously on screen, or tabs, back buttons, 
- "Selectable" might by
   - entire class
   - all in a message protocol
   - self or hierarchy sends
   - hand-selecting a group of methods
   - even other criteria on method meta-data like <pragmas>, naming 
patterns, etc.

It is very painful or impossible to get these kinds of view currently. Some 
STers seem very attached to current browsers.

There are browser packages around for doing some of these but they generally 
seem to have fallen out of favour. I'm not sure if the new improved 
OmniBrowser framework makes this any easier than it was before. OB 
previously seemed to be architected to support a series of (single?) 
selections. Lukas is working on an updated tool set based on the new OB, I'm 
sure he would have a good perspective.
