	You clearly know more about this than I do (I wasn't trying to be 
patronizing, sorry if I sounded like it!). Could you clarify further for 
all those interested and confused (partly due to my message)?

	Cocoa apps and traditional UNIX apps are all Mach-0 executable 
since they are compile against the kernel (Mach), so how can a Carbon 
app be sometimes recognized as Mach-0 and sometimes as CFM? All Carbon 
apps I've seen are CFM binaries. I'm not trying to be argumentative, I'm 
nut curious...

	A funny quote from a funny friend: "The first rule about holes: if 
you are in one... STOP DIGGING!"
