View-Based NSTableViews Nibception

Brian Webster:

Yup, we’ve got ourselves a nib inside a nib here. That’s why it doesn’t have to reload the entire thing, it just reloads the smaller nib embedded as a data blob inside the main nib.

I think having view based NSTableView call awakeFromNib every time it creates a table Wiew (that's a table view view) is one of the biggest pains in the **s in Cocoa at the time of this writing (another one would be the lazy loading of the nib in NSWindowController that forces you to use self.window sometimes to make sure the outlets are "connected").
