While people are kicking around ideas for new backends for Ruby,
does anyone think that a backend could be written for Ruby that
uses the Objective C (GnuStep, Cocoa) runtime libraries? Or even 
just a translator from Ruby to ObjC ?

Seems that the languages are simliar in many respects, and it seems
like ObjC, being a superset of C, would make a good backend if it's
possible (threads, performance, etc).

Just wondering.
