That's why I thought I'd start looking at it myself as it seems like a feature the wider community might have more interest/motivation to work on than the Apple folks.

I don't think we'll openly weep if the first patches we see don't work in Objective-C++, but don't do anything that would it impossible.

Objective-C (and its revisions and supplements) is orthogonal to C++.  We can and do support using the Objective-C extensions in code whose "base" standard is C++0x.

That seems like a reasonable approach.
