 * \defgroup baseten_appkit BaseTenAppKit
 * BaseTenAppKit is a separate framework with AppKit bindings.
 * It contains a subclass of NSArrayController, namely 
 * BXSynchronizedArrayController, generic connection panels for use with
 * Bonjour and manually entered addresses and value transformers.

 * \defgroup value_transformers Value Transformers
 * Transform database objects' status to various information.
 * BXDatabaseObject has BXDatabaseObject#statusInfo method which
 * returns a proxy for retrieving object's status. The status may
 * then be passed to NSValueTransformer subclasses. For example, 
 * an NSTableColumn's editable binding may be bound to a key path
 * like arrayController.arrangedObjects.statusInfo.some_key_name
 * and the value transformer may then be set to
 * BXObjectStatusToEditableTransformer.
