Steve Streza (via Gus Mueller):

XPCKit is a Cocoa library for wrapping the XPC C APIs in a handy object-oriented model. It is merely meant as an object-oriented wrapper for the C library, and does not attempt to layer any additional semantics on top.

I get why Apple wanted to use a different set of types for IPC, but I bet lots of people will be writing their own boxing and unboxing code for xpc_object_t and Cocoa property list types.

Apparently there are some private classes in Cocoa somewhere for doing the boxing. It's a shame we don't have access to it already- but at least Steve got it done for us.
