What's the convention used by Apple's Java<->ObjC bridge? I don't like
underscores either, and if Apple decided not to do any underscores I
should follow suit. It could always have a compile-time option to give
_ names, for backward compatibility.

Well, as mentioned here before there's now three of us happily hacking
Unfortunately the folks over at the pyobjc mailing list are in deep
of my mails are still waiting in their mail queue (and have been for
almost 2 weeks
now) and a message directly to Steven Majevski has also remained
I think he's off on holidays or otherwise occupied.

Do you have an example of a Jython program with a NIB? That's what we're
currently working on
for pyobjc, and we're getting some positive results (we have a Python
applet with a .nib
and it fills an on-screen table with data from a Python table source
object (just before
crashing hard:-)), but it would be nice to see how things are done in
