I agree with your points, Max. I do not see the point of expending 
energy on a procedural-to-OO converter of some kind. It does not make 
sense.

I will always hold Staz, Andy, FB and this list in a special place in 
my heart, but for me, FB is legacy (like Carbon is) and Cocoa is for 
new projects.

Well, I widely agree with Max and I fully and a bit sadly agree with 
Paul. (Still hoping that there is a way to access the Cocoa-API for 
an opaque implementation of the FB-routines that are called by 
FB-keywords.)

As most FB-listers may know, FB is also legacy for me and Java is for 
new projects but, as most listers may not know, Java for the 
Mac-platform in general is quite easy to convert to Cocoa-Code.
