I also think this is likely. 

A lot will need to be done to add better Darwin/MacOSX/Carbon/Cocoa support 
and there doesn't appear to be a line of people willing to test changes
for GnuStep or OpenStep. As CoreFoundation is common to Darwin and MacOSX,
as well as CarbonLib on Classic MacOS, it would seem to make sense to 
build ontop of that ( CFBundle and the plugin-services [sort of COM for
the Mac] ) rather than NSBundle et.al. which are only on OSX. 
( and I assume GnuStep/NextStep/OpenStep )   

Still, it might be good to get out one last "legacy" release of pyobjc --
Darwin and MacOSX might spark some more interest in Objective-C and
GnuStep!
