A lot of this conversation smacks of Ned Konz's Starbrowser - it's on  
squeakmap, but I don't think it will run on newer stuff than 3.7  
without some love.

Anyway, it allowed you to create arbitrary contexts for methods,  
classes etc. Very useful... I should try to get it working again. I  
haven't seen Ned around here for eons, so I wonder if he still does  

Here are a couple of screenshots, one showing a bare method that has  
been dragged onto the tree at left and another showing a class on the  
left with category and method browser on on the right.


These are from a 3.7b-5868 image in early 2004.
