I wonder if you could be more specific about `reliable' and `useful' in this 

I use the NS port every day, typically for several hours, and I don't see 
reliability issues at all.  I build from bzr HEAD every few days (at least).  
Is the released version troublesome?  Is there some particularly key use that 
the appkit port enables but the NS port doesn't? 

I don't have any particular horse in this race -- I use the NS port simply 
because it's the one that allows me to keep up-to-date best.  I get the sense 
that there are adherents on each side, but that inertia (in both ``this is in 
bzr'' and the ``this one isn't merged into bzr'' directions) is the ruling 
factor at the moment.  With a prerelease in the field, it seems like an 
opportune time to merge or swap is in the nearish future.
