Yep, it basically means you get two frameworks (like appkit and 
foundation or two separate frameworks, together forming cocoa). We can 
simply have two targets, BCFoundation and BCAppkit both having their 
own sdk to build against (10.2 and 10.3, respectively). Last time I did 
the main cleanup the first thing I did was to put all current 
development in a BCFoundation folder leaving space for a BCAppkit 
folder at the root level.

Sounds interesting, a few days ago I spoke Serge Cohen who was using 
OCUnit (or one of the variants, I'll ask him which) as well in his 
project and was pretty enthusiastic about it. I haven't used it myself, 
but if it is trivial to add I can certainly see the advantage.
