Please don't get me wrong: My posting was not intended as a complaint about
the speed of porting. My question was asked in a friendly &
technically-interested manner and Mr. Guyer I'm sorry for not knowing how to
develop software and for not knowing all the technical differences between
Carbon, Classic, and so on ...

(It took Wolfram Research -- with a lot of resources, brain power, and cash
-- approximately two years to port Mathematica to OS X and no serious user
complained about that.)
