The Gorm format itself is pretty flexible, so it's not likely to change. What 
may or may not be stable is the format of encoded objects (i.e. 
encodeWithCoder:, initWithCoder:). I've asked that if
developers change the coding format of an object that they provide (at least 
temporarily) a method for loading in the old format.

The objects that are not currently available from Gorm (Browsers, Tables, etc) 
are not stable, however (NSBrowser doesn't even implement coding yet). But 
we're working on that.

P.S. I'm using Gorm generated files in the gui for NSPrintPanel and 
NSPageLayout. Plus, currently, almost all the inspectors that Gorm uses are 
gorm files generated by Gorm!
