I'm working 60 hour weeks these days so I'm unlikely to answer any  
questions in a timely manner. There are several Apple mailing lists  
dedicated to what you are trying to do, though, e.g. cocoa-dev and  
macnetworkprog. See http://lists.apple.com/mailman/listinfo

I want to write a couple of indispensable tools for Erlang using Cocoa  
and thought of using Erlang as the extension language. Then I realized  
that there's too much complicated marshalling of data and decided not  
to write a Cocoa bridge until EEP 7 (FFI) is out. I have written a  
Cocoa bridge for Allegro Common Lisp previously.

	Thanks, Joel
