Ah OK!, sure. But SOPE also has (and always had) EOControl (control layer of EOF 2) which provides and uses the EOQualifier API :-) sope-appserver has no GDL1 dependencies (as far as I'm aware).

Which reminds me of why adding GDL2 might not trivial, you would need to check/fix incompatibilities between GDL2 EOControl and SOPE EOControl.

Quite some time (1 1/2 years?) ago I ported SOPE to also be usable with Mulle EOF (http://oswald.codeon.de/project-titmouse/), which is a full binary compatible EOF clone (quite impressive IMO). If GDL2 is really Apple EOF API compatible, then using the Mulle EOF compile options will definitely work for this purpose.

Is it really like you *must* write an EOF clone to be taken seriously in the OpenStep Scene? … let me count - GNUstep has GDL1 and GDL2, Helge wrote something for SOPE, Andreas Höschler has something with bells and whistles, you wrote one and I know of several failed attempts of people you probably don't know …

Well I just had to say this ;-)
