Yes, but I think that's a rather rare situation (linking to _both_ frameworks), 
and
there is a solution for that one : just have a special header file using 
#define ;-)
That is, just like now, but in the other way: the default should be AB and if 
you 
need to use both Apple and yours framework, well, provide some header file
renaming AB* in GS* or GSAB* for example ...
I think it would be more consistent.
