Not currently, but this doesn't say anything about GNUstep's long term
goals. Having a clear position on this would be a very good thing, and
will be necessary eventually. I think that stability, both in interface
(most easily, and possibly best, achieved by sticking to OpenStep and
OPENSTEP) and implementation, is much more important than adding new
cocoa stuff. (This actually applies to more than just -gui.)
