#22 Provide direct-manipulation for views


Same rationale as for direct-manipulation of
documents, allow a GUI-based way to point at a view
and close (and potentially do other things to) it
without needing to go through the menu system.

    Mike please rephrase this as a practical suggestion that fits and is doable in the current framework.

    The closest to `direct` I can come up with at the moment is a Delphi style right click on the tab which brings up a
    popup menu with a Close option.

    Right-click is a well-established Windows standard for
    direct manipulation. If you like, take the suggestion as:
    add a right-click menu providing access to common actions
    for each file to the tab.

    Since the request I added the right-click meny on the
    notebook page tab of Additional Views to close the View.

    I'm closing the request for now. At least the infrastructure is
    there to extend the concept.
