Thanks for your suggestion.
You are probably right, but having more choices introduce the
responsibility to choose the right thing to do, and I am not ready for
that yet. It is very difficoult for me to pass this mental block
(becouse I am aware that it is just a problem of my mind).
The first problem I would like to solve is how to write the makefile,
in order to bild the gnustep program in shared object with an extern
"C" entry point. The second will be how to manage resources, but it
has a lower priority.
