Commercial Mac IDE

Ah yes, I totally forgot.

If you are developing for OS X - why not extend Xcode?!  You just
missed WWDC so your timing is very very early, since you will want
good access to the xcode kids, but I guess mailing lists would work
almost as well.

Why drag in the baggage of Eclipse, or force people to cry Lisp over
Emacs, and why not go for the primary method to develop Cocoa
applications in OSX?  I've used Xcode and it is pretty nifty and keen.
 I'm sure apple would be pleased to learn about something like this.

Also Cocoa is hands down one of the best UI dev kits.  Prior to .NET I
would say without a doubt it is _the_ best, but now that I hear the
borland dude did .NET maybe there is a competitor now.
