I've got to say, gormtest is visually impressive - it's amazing to see
all those nibs come up in the interface. I don't think I ever expected
this to be done.
It's one of the key changes to allow easy porting from OS X to other
platforms, and therefore a key to ongoing use of GNUstep and therefore
a positive step to ensure the inevitable victory of software libre ;-)

I was looking at the phase 2 changes required - it looks like only a
little code will be required to open nibs, mainly in GormDocument.m (I
think, mainly supporting nib bundles from the document open dialog and
hooking into the nibcompatibility class for deserialisation, somewhat
like the code for gorms, yes?). Would there be other extensive changes
required to be able to read nibs and save them as gorms?
This is really really great!
