There's a prosaic reason to want to port to Mac: sometimes you walk into a
studio or concert hall and find only a Mac there.  If you're a Pd user, you'd
want to just run your music on the Mac...

I've already started on a port, using PortAudio; I don't know about
CoreAudio/CoreMidi.  But I think it's pointless until TK comes along for
OSX, and we can't predict when that will become available, although I
don't think more than a few months from now.
