I've no idea if this is documented anywhere, but it is "common"
knowlegde that nib files are archived Objective-C object graphs. The
connections (outlets/actions) are the hard part, there are classes for
these but no documentation on how to use the. Pretty printing a NIB
should do wonders (and is left as an exercise for the reader).
