Have a look at my contrib directory:
	 ...ccl/contrib/krueger/InterfaceProjects (in older releases) or
	 ...ccl/contrib/cocoa-ide/krueger/InterfaceProjects (in newer releases)

I'm a few weeks from checking in a major revision to this stuff, but what is there now should get you started on how to create and load nibs, open up your own windows etc. while still in the IDE where you have a listener window. Look at InterfaceBuilderWithCCLTutorial2.1.pdf in ...InterfaceProjects/Documentation. My new stuff will let you easily create a stand-alone app that optionally includes IDE resources like listener windows.

If you have specific questions after that, let me know; hopefully I can save you from going down all the rat-holes that I did.
