Still a potentially handy and necessary effort, thanks for doing it.

I am wondering if a type of PG Pro approach to an FB Cocoa would be  
the best approach to doing that. Simple UI builder (TWM lite), Editor  
for classes. etc a la RB, .m and .h file engine, then adds the needed  
'runtime' stuff, then ships it all over to FBtoC for building.
