This is well in-progress.  To test:

check out workspaceswitcher module (silly place, I know)
build navigator 
build navigator/javagator (supplies Java looks)
build navigator/beanigator (supplies Bean look)

install and choose Navigator from context menu

Existing features:
 - Selection of registered looks via combo box
 - Selection of predefined filters (e.g. Methods, Public
   members, overrides), or text (name start or wildcard)
   entry filtering
 - Single click navigation (for list-style looks that
   specify this)

Main to-do's:
 - Write tree view - currently list view supported
 - Write looks for form, properties, others
 - Write structure look (to wrap existing node tree)

 - Looks API still changing, not yet official part of
 - Registry API more stable, but still not official

(if necessary, both of these issues can be worked around
without too much hacking, using a private copy of the

Difficulty: 4 (remaining work)
Hack factor: 0

Note members of the core team would like to move this module
into a submodule of core or openide - will be discussing
this with Hrebejk & Trung monday.  Beanigator/Javagator
(formigator? propagator?) can be distributed into cvs
for the modules they depend on.
