Hmmm.  Quite interesting.

Can I summarize what I understood ?

There is an API by which you can request the path to a certain gsw
component.  To find the component, the library loops on all bundles in the
application, and looks for the component in there (scanning all languages
and possible extensions [.gsw or .wo]).  It then returns the first match.

What about keeping a table of available components then ?  At start up,
you scan all already loaded bundles using +allBundles, and record all .gsw
and .wo components (that is, I think, resource directories with a .gsw or
.wo extension, localized or not) you find in a table.  Then, you register
for the NSBundleDidLoad notification; when you get that notification, you
check for the components in the newly loaded bundle, and add them to the

Once you get a request for a component, you only have to get it from the

Maybe it's not appropriate, anyway I thought I'd say it.

If we are to include HasGSWComponents, why not making it automatical ?  I
think it would be annoying to have to set it manually.

xxx_WEBSERVER_LOCALIZED_COMPONENTS) is not empty, gnustep-make would set
HasGSWComponents=YES; if it is empty, it would not set it.

I can easily/trivially implement this behaviour if it's deemed correct.
