This is not the GNUstep side.  So please be clear that this is not a viewpoint 
shared with the GNUstep project (I hjope it's not yours).
IMO this is primarily a view promulgated by trolls as a 'straw man' argument 
(ie claim GNUstep is something it's not, then attack it for being that 
imaginary thing).

This *is* what GNUstep has been doing for decades now.  Arguably it's not 
working, but I still think it's basically the right approach.
