Description:


Concrete subclasses provide lenguage-specfici services for other tools
like list of classes/globals used in a method, list of messages sent by 
this method, senders/implementors of a selector and so on.

NOTE: Lot of code used to be directly in tools, namely NewSystemBrowser.
The code should be moved to toolbox classes to allow reuse and to allow
for multiple languages (Smalltalk / Java / JavaScript / Ruby).
