I would like confirmation on the following assumptions about ObjC:

- It is possible to make Obj-C GUIs have the look-and-feel of all existing platform (perhaps by using QT in the back-end);

Of course ... though that would be using the base library, not the gui (which is written to have the NeXTstep look
and feel rather than a native one).

What I'd like to do is dynamically load Obj-C code in the form of an NSBundle. Then the code would pop-up a GUI that would be native to the operating platform. I'm still confuse (despite having read the faq) about the front-end/back-end distinction. Now QT is a cross-platform C++ GUI library. It's the one library that was used to write the KDE desktop on Linux. Their library works on Mac OS X, Linux, Windows, and embedded Linux. Because it is said that the "back-end" engine for GnuStep can make GTK or Win32 calls, I thought that it could also make QT calls... Does this all make sense, or am I totally out of bounds ?
