Hey Gary,

Just wanted to say thank you for adding the translated headers to the trunk.  I checked out the latest version and was able to load the framework now we will have to see how everything goes as we move forward.  

One other note to anyone else who tries to use the newly checked in StoreKit.  It took me awhile to figure out how to reference the classes from this framework but I finally found it and thought it might be useful to someone else.  If you want to reference a class such as SKPaymentQueue you would reference it as such: NS:S-K-PAYMENT-QUEUE

This can be determined by calling ccl::objc-to-lisp-classname as such: (ccl::objc-to-lisp-classname "SKPaymentQueue")

I'm sure most of you already knew this but I thought that little tidbit might be helpful to someone.  

Once again, thank a lot Gary!
