I think yes, but if they offers full support for Objective-C we will be
able to install GNUstep (at least gnustep-base) on CrystaX with the
advantage that libcrystax offers all functionalities missed on libc of
android (Bionic).

I guess I'm confused.  Why do people think implementing it themselves is the shorter path to success?  Does he not know about GNUstep?  I admit I was amused at the one month estimate for implementing a Cocoa compatible Foundation.
