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.
I have a script written about a year ago for Io that does this very thing. (Though it is dependant on the : being part of the identifier, which is one thing we are considering removing at the moment (replacing it with underscores); though it shouldn't be difficult to modify if we do make that change to the language.)
And it has a different object (prototype) and thread (actor) model
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.
There are still some major changes to be made to the language (Collections work comes to mind first and foremost) before we're closer to a stable release; but yes, caution should be taken, it's still rather rough.
