An instance of this class is instantiated in the MainMenu.nib default NIB file.  All outlets and the base class are automatically derived at runtime by the AutoBaseClass mechanism provided by the NibClassBuilder.

from AppKit import NibClassBuilder
from AppKit.NibClassBuilder import AutoBaseClass

# Make NibClassBuilder aware of the classes in the main NIB file.
NibClassBuilder.extractClasses( "MainMenu" )

# WSTApplicationDelegate will automatically inherit from the
# appropriate ObjC class [NSObject, in this case] and will have the
# appropriate IBOutlets already defined based on the data found in the
# NIB file(s) that define the class.

    defined the first time this method is invoked.

    This kind of lazy evaluation is generally recommended;  it speeds
    app launch time and it ensures that cycles aren't wasted loading
    functionality that will never be used.

    (In this case, it is largely moot due to the implementation of
