Personally I found programming with HOM a bit difficult to understand
and therefore like blocks a bit more (but BTW also think that they only
are really useful if a real garbage collector is available ...)

But anyway: Marcel ported MPWFoundation (that includes, HOM) to
GNUstep/libFoundation - so if anyone is interested, I can probably
upload the GS modified frameworks to gs/contrib or something after
talking to him.
