Well. What I was prepared to do to fix this problem was to apply a patch that had previously been created by one of our developers, and had been accepted by the developers of PyObjC. The same code is present in the current PyObjC distributed by its developers. I'm not prepared to further analyze their code to understand how it works and to understand your proposal for changing it. You are welcome to take up any further desired changes with the developers of PyObjC. If they make any changes that are important to py27 and py35 as well we can back-port them.
