I didn't say that _adding_ a Cocoa specific class, like NSDrawer or
NSToolbar, would make GNUstep instable.

What I am saying is, that the _primary_focus_ should be on makeing
GNUstep as stable as possibel, _then_ look at a possible Cocoa "add-on".

Uhm ... that is one of the problems with GNUstep I've seen. There are
bugs, problems and crashes that simply are side-effects.

No one is talking about an exclusive Openstep implementation.
But again, a _working_ and _bug_free_ (as much as possible ;-) Openstep
compatible_foundation_ in core/ should be the starting point for adding
GNUstep specific, and Cocoa extensions.
