The focus of  GToolKit is to allowing GTK developer to work with ObjectiveC
and leverage bacic foundation ObjectiveC objects for this ...

IMHO to speedup GNUstep I think it would make a lot more sense to
build a  "component" NSView subclass type that could wrap around an entire
high level widget from a foreign widget set ... like textsystem, html browser, 
In a way such that events on the runloop and redrawing get shared properly.

Like this the remaining large scale components could be filled quickly,
resulting in a  usefull system ...
