Could you please explain a bit on this? A big junk of the document structure is already in GNUsteo GUI and has been usefull for years. At least to the degree which Ink needed. The new bits that are missing, should be added inplace. This is also a good example to see, that some Cocoa extensions cannot be done in a separate library. For example, changes in NSApplication where needed to support document handling.

I really would prefer to have the additional Cocoa classes in GUI and have a compiler switch to not include them. That way we could also remove the small bits needed in other classes to support them. But as I said, the bigger problem I see in in the writing of the code. We did not trund down the offer of any new class during the last year, as there was none.
