Doesn't gyp already generate Xcode projects for Chrome?  I think the issue is that gyp can't generate replacement project files for Apple's Mac port or other build systems yet.  That was my take-away from the last discussion--that gyp needed to be enhanced so that all build systems could be generated, making addition or removal of source files a trivial task.

As far as Jeremy's other points, perhaps bugs should be filed about each item so that more specific discussion can take place on each topic.
