Hello David,

Having no Sun to work with, but being a lucky PowerBook user, I'm really eager to have a hand on a useable Mac version.
You're talking about a Carbon port. Would it really run under MacOS-X ? That would be great, as I only work with that (Mail, Network Admin, Web browsing, and of course programming ;-)

Best wishes to you and all the selfers,
