I believe that this might also stem from a fundamental misunderstanding of 
GNUstep's goals.

Many people, erroneously, believe that GNUstep's goal is to clone the OPENSTEP 
4.2/Mach OS.  This is not the case.  GNUstep is, and always has been, a 
cross-platform API.

My reading of this page seems to be:

"We have rewritten a lot of OpenStep things from scratch.  We are 
missing Cocoa-specific things like NIBs and NSStream, and a lot of 
OpenStep stuff too.  We do not want to work with GNUstep because we 
have 'different goals'."

AFAIK, gnustep-base has come a lot closer to their goals than they 
have.  A lot of functionaliy on their TODO list, to be precise.
