Hi Riccardo, i think asking for a use case For a technology Demonstration or a Fun project does not make Sense.
Would be like having two ships going the same Route. There is no use case for a bridge between both but it is good to have one. Just in case...
And of you ask for a use case you could question what gnustep is good for if there is wxwidgets or vice versa.
Let real Users decide of they like wxgnustep or not...

On The Road

Viceversa, it makes no sense for GNUstep to target WX, since it is already highly portable at all levels.
Except for existing C++ applications using wxWidgets. Nobody can easily port them to GNUstep.

sorry, but I still don't get the use-case of having wxCocoa just plain on GNUstep without more.

If you have a wx program written in C++ you can already port it to Windows, Cocoa and Unix/X11.

If you have an Obj-C AppKit program you can use it either directly on Mac or with GNUstep on Windows and Unix/X11

So what would you gain with having wxCocoa on GNUstep if you want to expose only the wx C++ interface? I still think nothing... there are no more targets GNUstep has which wx doesn't have.
