Re: Cocoa front end

Miguel and Oswald,

Thanks guys. My idea was to exercise some cocoa/objc skills. If most of my time is going to be spent not doing that, then I gotta find something else. 

Thanks for the tips guys.

A engine/GUI split was done at one point and we used to have a number  
of front-ends, one for GNOME, and one that used Tk.

The results were not pretty.   The code became a mess, and the GUI  
model vs the terminal model just did not blend well.

It might be much better to start an effort from scratch in that case,  
you will end up with something that is better integrated into the core  
OS than trying to build a UI on top.
