Yeah, the problem is, you'd have to be SURE Apple was using the XML format for all DO operations - and I'd bet you couldn't do that.

Oh well.

Again, sorry for bringing up a topic that's in the FAQ.

Fair enough, sorry for asking a Q already answered there.

I wonder if the change to OS X 86 + their XML format for archiving holds any
new hope for compatibility... does it? I suppose not.

Well, if Cocoa uses XML for DO exchanges, I guess it could be possible
in theory to have a compatible DO between GNUstep and OSX. But I
really don't know if they use (or can be set up to use) XML instead of
binary serialization for DO.. could be worth checking.
