> About the barrier of Objective C. 

Objective C `looks like' a barrier to new developers - but in reality it's
a very feeble barrier, for two reasons: 

* Objc is much easier to learn than C++ for a C programmer;

* Objc is very similar to Java, which is a very popular language.

Some marketing effort should perhaps be spent in trying to lower this
objc-fear ?

gnustep already offers a guile interface and a java one.
