Where did you get that conclusion I never heard about that one before! :-)

I believe his point is a valid one. It would be nice to have some kind of a standard ObjC library which comes with gcc-objc and which provides some basic functionality needed in most applications. But I don't think splitting base would help a lot here, unless we're talking about a more tight integration with gcc, which would be very interesting...

Whats problematic is that it isn't possible to go w/o it and run GNUstep binaries/libraries like a regular Unix tool. Thats one of the reasons why its currently not possible for OGo to switch to gstep-base.

Exactly, this is IMO a severe drawback of GNUstep, even worse, a major show stopper (at least for me)!
