Consistently return the domain object in question for any inspect/explore/browse call to it.

Background: We did change the semantics of #inspect for the Squeak 5.1 release to harmonize #explore. After several ongoing discussions with Chris (cmm), we found a more usefull consent. That is, call ToolSet directly if you want to gain access to the created tool window(s). Call the object directly to get the object back. Now you can sprinkle #inspect, #explore, #browse etc. in your code during exploratory debugging sessions again.

Let's hope this works for everybody. See the deprecated #exploreAndYourself to better understand what is not required anymore.
