Postponed until the next release. This change is non trivial due to the fact that, unlike Cocoa, GNUstep does archive extra information about an NSPanel. One of the requirements for a class being able to be substituted for it's parent is that it should not implement NSCoding. On Cocoa NSPanel doesn't, on GNUstep it does, therefore to correct this issue, NSPanel should no longer archive the flags it currently archives. These flags are not set by Gorm and do not need to be archived, nevertheless it is a change to the Gorm format and will be put off until the next release.

I want to be able to change a NSWindow in a NSPanel and vice-versa by changing its class.
