Well GCC is interested in Objective-C except we don't have anyone
really working on it.  That is the biggest issue right now.  We want
to support it; trust me.  If someone would step up to the plate and do
the supporting work, we will keep it.  The biggest issue is that Apple
had stepped up to the plate and then disappeared to go do clang
because of politics due to GPLv3.  Since GNUStep is a GNU project I
think we should support GPLv3 friendly companies/projects before we
give in to ones that don't want to even want to look at GPLv3 code.
