My first priority is to write model classes which are portable and can be used 
by everybody involved. Core Foundation allows me to do this, GNUStep's 
Foundation does not.

My view classes will be written for OS X's AppKit. If I can't use these classes 
in GNUStep that's water under the bridge, it's not a priority. People writing 
view classes for other platforms will just have to use something else.
