Apparently the third of these trumps the first two.  I disagree with that 
decision, and so does a lot of code in GNUstep.  It should be easy to port code 
from Cocoa to GNUstep, but I don't think there is any reason why we should not 
provide a superset of the functionality that Apple implements.  Doing so seems 
to be entirely in keeping with the goal of GNUstep as I understand it: to 
provide a great Free Software development environment that (also) makes it easy 
to move Cocoa applications to other platforms.

If GNUstep is nicer to work with than Cocoa, then I think that's a feature, not 
a bug!

yes, as long as we don't implement something which is incompatible with Cocoa... I think it is worth to be a superset (= better). I didn't follow closely the case here so I don't know if it applies.
