I globaly agree but may be we could move "GNUstep extensions" to a separated 
library instead of just removing these addons ?

I'm not sure. It should be coded something like [string 
substringToIndex:[string length]-[ext length]] which is less easy 
to understand when reading the code and, IMHO, less error-proof.
