Well, the PreferencesUI stack has a panel for the Application Browser 
where you can set actions for various object types. But the Project 
Browser doesn't respect these settings. As a start, it might be nice to 
have these carry over so that when a user migrates from the AB to the PB 
and double-clicks a card, for instance, she doesn't have to wonder why 
the property inspector doesn't pop up.
