It's been a lot of time ago, but that is wrong: when I initially
implemented PyObjC I put a lot of effort in understanding the
differences between the NeXT and the GNU ObjC runtimes, and PyObjC used
to work ok on both, with a slight bias toward the GNU runtime (having
the source at hands helps, as you know :-)
Version 2.0 brought major changes to the internals, mainly to support
the new MacOS frameworks, with tools to automatically create the needed
glue interfaces between the two worlds.
Too bad I wasn't involved/motivated enough to keep the GNU runtime
support up-to-date, and it was finally declared obsolete and removed.
Just a few cents of clarity,
