The intention was not to block the 'inspect' view name for application

The cleaner solution might be to do a different traversal and to use a
pseudo-namespace of some kind, like the class browser does. This,
however, would mean a broader effort.

Anyway, it's not a big thing to change the view name to 'inspect'. I'll
do it tonight if no further objections appear.

Kind regards,
