The objc-sig has shown some recent life, with the posting of Lele
Gaifax's new Objective-C modules.  Lele in fact started his own small
mailing list but I've (hopefully ;-) persuaded him to move that to the

`objc-sig' might be a bad name for it since I have no personal

porting issues.  Objective-C is a darn good language in its own right,
but the majority of its use is probably by *Step programmers.
