I don't actually have any inside knowledge (I don't have access to 
Leopard developer builds, etc.), but I rather doubt that Apple is 
completely re-implementing PyObjC.  At least a few of the people who 
work on PyObjC are Apple employees, and there was a tutorial showing how 
to make a Cocoa app using PyObjC at apple.com a few months ago.  It was 
my impression that the Cocoa-python bridge discussed in the leopard 
preview docs *is* PyObjC, though of course I could be way off the mark, etc.
