... finish GNUstep's Key Value Observing implementation and implement bindings. ... As most modern Mac OS X applications take full advantage of KVO and Bindings, a GNUstep implementation would be a huge step toward source-level compatibility with Mac OS X. ... include creating the NSController, NSArrayController, NSObjectController, and NSValueTransformer classes and adding bindings support for existing classes, for example NSTextField, NSPopUpButton, and NSProgressIndicator.
