After I posted, I wondered if I'd misread your mail, and you were
actually planning a platform independent core with a fancy OS X-
optimised Cocoa version. But apparently I did not...
Doesn't this seriously limit the market - or if non-commercial,
"audience" - for your tool? Which means it's not going to do the
Erlang platform any favours either, if that was your aim.
Anyone else have an opinion on portability? I even make Windows ports
of my GPL tools, because I don't believe in arbitrarily punishing
users for poor choices. Besides, it means I get about four times as
many users (=testers) :)
