Really cool ! io_objc works fine on gnustep. Impressive !
in StepTalk it seems to be broken though (seems a problem not saving
the context)

 Io language is interesting in a way that you can redefine all syntax.
 In my mind, it might not be hard to create a 'Objective-C Script'
language on it.
 And it has a different object (prototype) and thread (actor) model
than Objective-C,
 which could be a good companion to GNUstep.
 But the langauge itself is still young and may have some big changes later
 on the language design and internal implementation.
 So I prefer to wait a couple months and see how it is going.
