I think you can get by on very little. You need to know enough to
read Apple's docs, but that's not very much.
I mean, it's just C with a bit of smalltalk wedged into it, right? :-)

My advice would be:
1) Do Apple's tutorial in Obj-C.
2) Do the first two(?) PyObjC tutorials (one of which is the same as
Apple's but in Python).
3) Dive in!
For their next act, they'll no doubt be buying a firewall
running under NT, which makes about as much sense as
building a prison out of meringue. -- -:Tanuki:-
