Some of them are a real, pardon my French, pain in the arse.

Especially those that get included automatically for no obvious reason,
or are defined subclasses of a class you need but clash with your own

A very (not so) good example is NSSocketPort, defined in NSPort (why
doesn't it use seperate header?????), that defines -socket -- returning
an NSSocketNativeHandle (ie. an int)

Oh, yes, yes yes, you could use STRICT_OPENSTEP for including NSPort.h


Looks to me like there are additions, extensions and "stuff" that isn't
even tested whether it will work.

And don't give me that "works here" ... it doesn't work here, and that's
what matters to me (and my boss).

And yes, I reported that (among other things) before.
