Class protocol:

queries
o  supportsSubComponents
answer whether instances of the spec class support sub components


Instance protocol:

accessing
o  collection
return collection

o  collection: something
set collection

building
o  buildSubViewsFor: aBuilder in: aView

o  buildViewFor: aBuilder in: v

o  buildViewWithLayoutFor: aBuilder in: aView
redefined to suppress the postCreateView for the specCollection itself
(there is no component for it); instead, it will be called for each individual
component in the specCollection

converting
o  fromLiteralArrayEncoding: aSpecArray
read my attributes from aSpecArray

o  literalArrayEncoding
(comment from inherited method)
generate a literalArrayEncoding array for myself.
This uses #literalArrayEncodingSlotOrder which defines the slots and
order and #skippedInLiteralEncoding which defines slots to skip.
For most subclasses, there is no need to redefine those.

enumerating
o  do: aBlock

parsing a view
o  fromView: aView callBack: aBlock
extract attributes from aView

** This is an obsolete interface - do not use it (it may vanish in future versions) **

o  fromViews: aCollectionOfViews callBack: aBlock
