It's not posted or public yet, not all done is the main reason, but getting there. I wanted to get NSFileHandle all 'wrapped' up before releasing. 

 It's something I've been working on because others said it wasn't going to happen, or wasn't possible.  I just worked the problem starting with menus, then windows, then buttons, then views (Steve V's demos, immeasurable help, also peeked inside FBNS when I got stuck, for data access, etc, defs)... Hopefully there's not some fatal flaw.  

There's no need to rewrite FB to match Cocoa as to becoming Objective FB, it's not necessary that I can see, at all. You can work almost perfectly procedural same as ever because there's a Cocoa equivalent or better for everything in FB, and you just match it up. Bend Cocoa to FB's way of working.
