[erlang-questions] process manager, R16, and 64-bit Macs

The question about R16 features reminded me that one of the promises of
R16 is the removal of Process Manager:
"The Pman application has been superseded by the Observer application.
Pman will be removed in R16." - http://www.erlang.org/doc/man/pman.html
However, Observer does not run at all on 64-bit Macs, because of that
platform's lack of support for wxWidgets. (The other Erlang GUI apps
I've tried do run, though the debugger is a bit crash-prone.) R15B3
seems to report the same "wxWidgets not found, wx will NOT be usable"
Is there any chance of Pman getting a delay until support is better? Or
is this just the cost of progress?
(I'm writing Introducing Erlang for O'Reilly, and need to decide if I'm
ripping out the process manager coverage and replacing it, and if I need
to keep that coverage around online for customers who happen to use
If there's a better place to ask this, please let me know!
