  I know this is off-topic, but as scientists on the Mac are major uses of
both TeX and Matlab, and the issue was raised on this list, I thought it was
still appropriate.
  As I do routinely since The Mathworks stopped developing Matlab for the
mac, I wrote once again to The Mathworks to seek re-development, especially
for Mac OS X 10.1.  My comments included the suggestion made here (i.e., on
this list) that re-development should much easier for OS X because it is
essentially 'nix at its core.  I thought I'd share the response I received:
