You're right, I've finally found it in

I agree :-) on the last sentence but in this case, why putting "base KVC" in 
FoundationExt an not base  ?

Using FoundationExt/extensions is OK for me.

Nice idea too but won't it be harder than to move GNUstep additions into 
FoundationExt (I don't know, just a question
:-) ?
