That would be counter-productive.  Consider the worst-case scenario of
keeping the Cocoa port: suppose that, just before the 23.1 release, the
port remains as irretrievably broken as you make it out to be.  In that
case, we can disable it by changing the build system, and mark it as
experimental/hackers-only.  So nothing is lost by keeping the port (and
I am optimistic that it will not come to that).
