Gorm doesn't understand nibs beyond 10.5's nib format.  Beyond this nibs are, 
primarily, compiled resources.   They don't contain the necessary information 
to reconstruct and edit them in Gorm.   

The designable.nib file is basically a XIB in the first place.   So completing 
the xib support in Gorm will be best in any case to make this work.

It's worth mentioning that XIB support works in GNUstep itself.
