Re: NSBundle -pathForResource: ofType:

Hi,

I wondered about that some time ago. I think it indeed changed (and I
think I changed libFoundation to do it the MacOSX way) !

First one does need to understand that having non-localized and
localized resources with the same name doesn't make a lot of sense !
Either a resource is localized or not, the fallback needs to be another
localized variant, not a non-localized one.

If this can be assumed the new behaviour is a significant optimization.
Lookup of non-localized resources is much faster since the filesystem
doesn't need to be scanned for each language first.

Does that make sense ? ;-)

Greetings
