As much as I would personally like to see this happen, it likely never 
will for a variety of reasons. First of all, this gives the impression 
that PortabilityKit is part of the GNUstep project, which it is not. Maybe 
a good compromise might be a script that sits in the root of core/ which 
would auto-get portabilityKit via CVS. This could present a few lines of 
test saying that it is not an official part of GNUstep, use, at your own 
risk, we dont support it, blah blah blah...Would any GNUstep core members 
care to comment on what they think of this idea?

No worries, but I created PortabilityKit in large part to *escape* the 
political whining that goes on with stuff being in core. GNUstep is not a 
cocoa clone, nor should it be. That being said, there's no reason we can't 
make PortabilityKit easy to get/make/use.

Maybe even a --with-PortabilityKit flag for configure-all with a nice 
big warning/disclaimer would be cool...just a thought.
