Ouch.  Yes -- I was assuming that the development tools and toolkits were 
already Cocoa-native, and that relatively little additional work needed to 
be done to update them to work with the modified APIs for the Cocoa Touch 
iPhone user interface.

Considering that Mac OS X 10.5 came out in October 2007, and yet we're still 
waiting for a released version of AG that will work under "Leopard", I guess 
this probably is asking way too much.  ;-(
