While, I believe our template system is similar, it is not the same as the one
on MOSX and it is, in some ways, better.   We need to make certain that these
classes are minimally impacted by this change.

Could you explain a bit, what the principle difference between the two is?

My intent when I suggested that we implement keyed archiving was to be able to
get XML output for .gorm files, whether that was MOSX compatible or not.

I beleive it is well worth the effort to try to make GNUstep and MOSX
compatible in this way, but I also believe that we shouldn't massively impact
current functionality to make it happen.

I would also like to see this happen. My feeling is that an XML format is only worthwhile, when it is compatible to MacOSX. The only other useful attempt would be to to get the Renaissance format working :-)
