Funny enough, drag-n-drop was easiest to implement on Windows.  For  
Mac OS X, it requires Tk/Cocoa, which Pd-extended doesn't fully  
support yet.  That is the future, so that would be a great project for  
someone to take on.  Basically, if you build Pd vanilla or Pd-extended  
on Mac OS X Snow Leopard or Lion withOUT installing Tcl/Tk, you'll be  
using Tk/Cocoa.  Then you can find the bugs, report them, and even fix  
them :)  If someone did a survey of how many bugs there are, and finds  
that there aren't many, I could be convinced to make Pd-extended 0.43  
use Tk/Cocoa.  My time for working on this Pd-extended release is  
quickly running out.

Gem will be included, I'm just waiting to hear from IOhannes on his  
plans for Gem development.  It wasn't building on Mac OS X 10.5,  
that's why I removed it.
