Already done! KDevelop 3 (gideon) has support for Objective-C class browsing, 
syntax highlighting etc. And you can use a 'patched for Objective-C' gdb to 
debug. I have patches to add Objective-C suppport to KDevelop 1.2 or 1.4 too.

KDE has GNUstep Foundation Kit/Objective-C bindings in the kdebindings module 
in the cvs, they are due for release with KDE 3. See kdebindings/qtobjc and 
kdebindings/kdeobjc in the HEAD branch.
