Sorry, I said NSProgress but I meant NSPredicate. I personally can't even imagine what a alternative API for NSPredicate would look like 🤔

It’s not ideal but I don’t think we want to undertake a reinvention of KVO when we do not have the Objective-C runtime present (so much of it relies on that dynamic behavior).

They seem to be most reliant on KVC, and as KVC is not available without the Objective-C runtime, I’m not sure what those classes are doing here. Are those classes doomed to be dropped? Or is there another way to implement them?
