Navigation in the inspection manager

Once the current node is inspected, it is possible to navigate within the inspector manager in three main ways:

down: Inspect a sub-object
lateral: Go to a different panel of the same object
up: Return from inspection of a sub-object

The inspector manager maintains two menus to perform this navigation. The first presents a list of down and lateral options available from the current object. The second keeps a record of the sequence of sub-objects chosen with the down option, so that the user can pop back up to any desired level at any time.
