Yes, I know that. I am afraid the wx-cocoa part is lacking help from experienced Cocoa users. I begin to have a fairly good experience in Cocoa, but I am simply deterred by C++: that language is so awful to me that I swore to never write a line of C++ again, especially after having tasted Obj-C.

Couldn't we just get rid of them?
