True.
I think that people who want "ports" from Cocoa apps to GNUstep should write 
a small documentation for cocoa developer.
They should write about what is implement into GNUstep, what free
implementation they could use instead of CoreFoundation (SKYRIX-Xml,
SKYRIX-LDAP, GS extentions ... ).

Warn about NSToolBar & NSDrawer & some "animation" method (specialy
progressBar).
that it is not the most important because GNUstep/NeXTstep guideline  is != 
Apple guidleline).

Some perl script can easily change some Apple "facilities" (tolarate
false/true) like 
perl -pi -e "s/bool/BOOL/g" .....
