Actually, I'm describing the GNUstep functionality that I know ... I guess
this might differ from the OPENSTEP functionality.


There are definitely some differences between GNUstep and OPENSTEP :-) I particularly like GNUstep's ability to show object counts. Under OPENSTEP I had create a comparable scheme with macros for incrementing and decrementing counters in the init and dealloc methods for each class.

Of course the BIGGEST difference between GNUstep and OPENSTEP is that one is alive and well and runs on a viable operating system, while the other isn't.
