Right. I want to parse the class definition to extract instance  
variable types and method signatures. Then I can use this information  
to create calls to the Objective-C runtime.

If there's an instance variable of type "float outlet", for example,  
then I'll know to strip outlet from OCaml code and to tell ObjC that  
it's an outlet. The whole purpose is to be able to define ObjC  
classes in OCaml while automatically creating the glue and bridging  
code.

	Thanks, Joel
