Beat you to it. Here's the deal: Newton.app looks like it'll be a
fairly trivially ported app to Cocoa (it's in Openstep-style
Retain/Release/Autorelease, rather than old NeXTSTEP-style alloc/free).
The old PB.project file imported fine into ProjectBuilder as well; I
haven't checked the .nib files but imagine they'll port fine too.
That's the good news.

Now the bad news. The Newton.app source code relies on a library called
"TCKit", which was probably the author's private library. TCKit is not
distributed online -- I don't know if we can get access to the source
without $$$. I've sent mail to the TCKit author and we'll see.
