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
objection to expanding the sigs mission to include NeXTSTEP/OpenStep
porting issues. Objective-C is a darn good language in its own right,
but the majority of its use is probably by *Step programmers.
I'm for keeping it around as-is, or perhaps changing the name to
META-SIG - SIG on Python.Org SIGs and Mailing Lists
