Rework of the outputview interface

Andras and me are have been looking at the output view and do not understand 
exactly how it is supposed to work. 

1) In IOutputView we found a way to register a view but no way to remove the 
view afterwards. We understand that you first have to register a view and 
when you set the model the first time the widget is created and filled with 
data. But how can a plugin remove its view when it is unloaded?
We have seen that a user can close a view but no other way to do this.

2) We wonder why the view id is a QString. Is there any reason to not to use 
an integer for this? The code is actually incrementing a counter and 
converting it to a QString.
