I should add that another doubt is how the app know which instance of
its observee is that it most show?

And searching on the image I found (on a Scribo class) the following:

	self redirectTo: self observee repository documentSystem view: #main
parameter: 'folderid' value: self observee uuid

Seems that is possible to pass a paramter to the view to permit it
show the desired object?

Mmmmm, I must continue investigating.
