I understand that both the Cocoa API and GNUstep inherit from the NeXTSTEP API, having read the documentation at, I notice that
it is already possible to cross-compile basic applications between Cocoa and GNUstep, so I was wondering if it is one of project goals to eventually
have full cocoa compatibility.

Since there is a great number of open source applications available for OSXm, the ability to compile and run these applications on GNUstep would provide
a good application base for the project and in the future help foster an open source alternative to the mac Aqua desktop environment. 

This is a lot more complicated than it probably sounds, particularly given that most modern Cocoa apps rely on more than just AppKit and Foundation.
