Here is a nice discussion on what could probably happen:

http://daringfireball.net/2007/10/tea_leaf_reading

If he proves right, we could derive an open source UIKit compatible
"Easy-GUI" framework from the standard GNUstep GUI so that it runs on
X11 based devices. This would open iPhone developers new options: i.e.
developing applications for other Handhelds (with Linux/X11/mySTEP)
and even (pre)developing their applications on an open platform first
and then deploying on the iPhone with all these signature keys.

So, IMHO we should not strip off anything AppKit but add value to
developers by offering both GUI framework variants in GNUstep.

I guess we will know better by FOSDEM...
