When I tried the GNUstep port some time ago, it was quite
unsatisfactory.  I thought it might be only for me and the
problem of the GNUstep version I tried or because of my
configuration.  So I asked your GNUstep version/configuration
because I took it for granted that those who are backing the
GNUstep port at least have experience of its use, otherwise it
looked so irresponsible to me.

I even think that pushing software that is far from usable only
because it is for GNUstep might result in lowering the
image/evaluation of GNUstep itself and do harm for the GNU
project's goal, because those who actually tried the GNUstep port
will feel disappointed.
