I am assuming then that the goal is to be compatible with WO 4.5.x
which is fine with me since I prefer Objective C over Java.  In
another email, David Wetzel mentioned some patches that he sent you.
Have they been incorporated in the current gsweb?  Or, what is the
status of those patches.

I notice in the TODO file that a WebScript interpreter has not been
done.  If this is still the case, I would like to work on that.  I
have written an interpreter for a scripting language based on
Objective C.  I can't use that code but I can start from scratch
using lessons I learned from that previous project.

Thanks, that is very helpful.
