I don't recall Yamamoto-san ever complaining that the NS port is in
and the Mac port is out.

He's just understandably exasperated that every time a third party
suggests including it, somebody who is not a Mac developer says that
it uses Carbon APIs, and since Apple has deprecated Carbon APIs, that
makes it a dead end anyway.  The first clause of that argument is a
whole truth, the second a half-truth, and the conclusion is bunk.
