/// \brief the interface of the Workbench.
/// The workbench is what you see graphically when you use
/// Nemiver. It is made of a menu bar, toolbars and a set of widgets
/// that let you actually debug your code.
/// The set of widgets that actually makes the debugger experience is called
/// a perspective. The Workbench must be seen a container of perspectives.
/// A perspective can be active or not.
///
/// An implication of a workbench being a container of
/// perspectives is the way it manages toolbars.
/// There can be several toolbars hosted by the workbench.
/// The expected behaviour is that when the user switch from one perspective
/// to another, (for example from the debugger perspective to the valgring memory
/// checker, if one appears some day) the toolbars of the right perspective
/// are displayed. Oh, and there can be only one perspective active at a time.
///
/// When a new perspective is added to the workbench, the later queries the former
/// for the toolbars to display when the perspective becomes active. As a result,
/// The workbench appends the toolbars in a Gtk::Notebook and shows the appropriate
/// toolbars when the perspective becomes active.
