Well, I'll tell you what I have to say before I'm done ;).  I was thinking
about this one the way home, and I like the idea of two different
initializers, say  initMutableSequence and initSequence.  We could have our
internal data ivar be untyped, and simply make it mutable data or immutable
data in the init method, and set an isMutable BOOL ivar.  All the work gets
done in the init method, and we don't have to add any new classes.

Does this make sense, or is this dangerous in some other way?


PS - incidentally, how are we handling Xcode 2.1 and the .xcodeproj file
