Okay, since I'm am not using XCode I thought there must be a simpler

I tried subclassing NSObject but now I am not sure about the right way
to create an object. Take this minimal example:

class Converter (NSObject):
   def init(self):
      self = NSObject.init(self)
         self, "documentChanged:",
      return self

   def documentChanged_(self, notification):
      print 'handleChange'

If I instantiate this class from the Main-Class with
Converter.alloc().init() my application dies quickly (Crash Reporter,
nothing in the logs). If I however instantiate it from Interface Builder
it works. Is this a bug or a feature? :)
I don't want to instantate it from IB, because I have 4 of these classes
and don't need all of them everytime.
