Aw, so that's who you are!  May I call you Andy?  You are required to swear at 
me in the name of "chuckr", with that trailing "r" as in "er".  Goes for the 
rest of this list, you are all officially friends.  I have some serious health 
problems, which means I swing very good some days, poor others, but I am 
retired due to  that, and not do to my mind going (I'm not that nuts yet!)

The only reason I pushed about the dates was because it struck me that this is 
hurting your public image a little bit ... on the other hand, I tend to be 
rather stubborn, and it's possible I am overreacting (I would hope I am, 
really, but I don't think so).

I truly love the idea of the objc language, but even though I think that the 
work that Apple hhas put into the tool shows smarts, I wish it was not any of 
it private.  I recognize their perfect right to do it, I just was extremely 
pleased when I found out about the gnu Foundation libs.  I want this public, 
not Apple only.

My only bitch is, I understand that there's a objc++, and seeing as I feel that 
objc's nicest feature is its minimalism in adding OO features, bringing in all 
of C++ strickes me as a great move backwards.
