I'm confused. On http://www.saurik.com/id/5, it says,
``Having done this then put me in the perfect frame of mind to try to
get other languages over, and the #1 request was Python, which already
has an amazing project behind it: PyObjC.''
``The effort for porting this turned out to be minimal, and the
maintainer of the project (Ronald Oussoren) has contacted me about
merging my changes, which means that its support that is likely to stay
around for quite a while.''
Never happened, eh? The merge, that is.
