[Pythonmac-SIG] pyobjc / cocoa

I was actually more concerned by the syntactic problems with the pyobjc 
Objective-C:						pyobjc:
[ obj method ]						obj.method()
[ obj method: arg ]					obj.method_(arg)
[ obj method: arg1 withOtherArgs: arg2 ]	obj.method_withOtherArgs_
( arg1, arg2 )

I would tend to prefer that the python version be:

def method(arg=0, withOtherArgs=0):

Which makes use of default arguments and labels.  Since Objective-C 
doesn't even HAVE optional arguments, this would work just fine.  
Although I suppose I should just be quiet to avoid a pointless language
