What Code Do You Want To See Written in Leopard?

Now that Leopard is out - let the code samples begin!

Kevin Hoffman's Blog

Now that Leopard is out and everyone is, I suspect, feverishly reformatting their laptops and desktops to install the retail copy of Leopard, developers can finally start sharing their Leopard code samples. Rather than me sitting around making up stupid reasons why such-and-such code sample might be useful to you, I figured I would ask what code you want to see written in Leopard. Keep in mind that I will not write code samples that do not use garbage collection or the new property syntax, so you'll just have to suffer through that.

I was thinking more along the lines of small but complete applications. I'm not a big fan of isolated "Hello World" applications that use contrived scenarios that violate design patterns just to illustrate small points. One thought might be to build a reference app that illustrates a bunch of sample points and then publish the app and do a series of blog posts on the finer points of each aspect of the app.

Anyway, let me know what you think and I'll get started dumping some (hopefully educational!) Leopard code.
