Let me just put you out of your future misery now: it's impossible.
The communication protocol is so fucking different that Apple
server-GNUstep client/GNUstep server-Apple communication client is
like Fox News praising Obama's every move. You'ld have to use GNUstep
or Apple for both ends.

However, since this issue comes up every now and then, why not add the
ability to detect an Apple client to our NSConnection (provided we
reverse-engineer their protocol of course), and the ability to connect
to an Apple server to our NSProxy? Could this really be that hard? Cuz
I'm thinking the hardest part would be cracking the Apple DO protocol.
With that outta the way having a multi-protocol implementation doesn't
seem difficult. Thoughts?
