I'm not aware of that: I thought that all the quartz code was
developed internally by apple (possibly using the original NextStep
code) and didn't use any of the GNUstep "attempted reimplementation"
code. (To be clear: I'm not talking about the concepts developed by
NextStep being used elsewhere but the actual GNUstep codebase not
getting near completion in the above.) But I could be wrong about the
source code's ancestry.
