Re: PROPOSAL: Objective-C++
Apple's Objective-C run-time is already open-source as part of Darwin.
If Apple ever donated their Objective-C run-time to the FSF (presumably
under GPL or LGPL), they would probably have to stop using it themselves :(
There are more ways to support open source than the FSF and most are more
politically and legally viable. I personally like the BSD style licenses.
