I don't know - maybe the Cocoa-dev list could help with this.  There is 
a type, Class, and classes are objects, according to the Objective-C 
manual.  But I can't find anywhere that says it inherits from NSObject 
(I guess that would be impossible) or conforms to the NSObject 
protocol.  So I'm not sure how you know what messages you can send to 
it as an object.  It would be nice to have a better understanding 
before relying too heavily on the result of performSelector.

I have been using Python lately, and this sort of stuff is really easy 
there!  Classes are objects, methods are objects, and all can be gotten 
from strings...
