There's demand for it. I talked to the guys who wrote Hydra (now SubEthaEdit)
and at first he was fascinated that he could just compile Objective-C code and
have it run under Linux. But then he found out that it didn't have Rendezvous
or Drawers, and he just said "forget it." People coming from the OS X world
design their stuff with that in mind, then they find out GNUstep doesn't have
it and they're not interested anymore.

Not the Obj-C framework, I don't think. Just a UNIX implementation. That
probably sawed the Hydra guy off more than the Drawers stuff even.
