Thanks for sending the patch files. Before we apply them, I would  
acctually like to get some more input from the mailinglist and see  
what opinion others have. This is a pretty big change in the project  
files, and I don't want to just go ahead and apply it. Furthermore,  
is GNUStep aware of all the changes in recent OS X version, eg does  
it know about all the new classes in BCFoundation and BCAppkit? If  
there are any classes that GNUStep doesn't know about, we would be  
forced to start writing separate code, and at this time I'm not sure  
if that would be a recommended path forward.

Please note that I am not trying to stay away from GNUStep, I just  
want to make sure that it doesn't interfere with the current  
framework and future developments/.


- Koen.
