There is no public documentation yet (Apple-related documents/talks  
are currently under NDA), although we plan on putting some information  
in the Clang internals documents.

Blocks == Closures.  The term "Blocks" comes from SmallTalk.  It was  
announced at Apple's WWDC Conference in June, and it is a new language  
component implemented in the compiler in Snow Leopard.
