Well, quality-discussions aside, it should be noted that these are
extensions in _apple's_ gcc. No released version of normal (fsf) gcc
supports them, and it doesn't seem very likely that 3.4 will.

It should also be noted that, by owning the trademark, Apple controls the definition of Objective-C. At least until there's a standards committee for the language (then all bets are off).

So you're right, the full Objective-C language is only implemented in Apple's GCC 3.3 right now. Doesn't mean the changes couldn't be migrated to FSF GCC, or implemented by any other Objective-C compiler (like CodeWarrior, or maybe someday IBM XLC).
