Many thanks.

This is another plus. I like it and I now use it to set tool-bar off and
the default font ;) It seems the ns port does not even support this.
Many thanks.

I don't know if this is a bug but it was surprising when I first saw it.

For example, when using emacs to edit .TeX files with AUCTeX which
allows you to view the output pdf (AUCTeX compiles to pdf files if
TeX-pdf-mode is t) file with key 'C-c C-v'. If you open a pdf file that
is not already open through 'C-c C-v', all pdf windows will be raised
above the Emacs window and obscure it, giving a feeling that Emacs just
disappeared (I thought it crashed in the first time). If the pdf file is
already opened, there's no such problem.

The ns port has this behaviour, only the new pdf window is raised and
the emacs window is still visible (i.e. it is consistent whether the
file is opened or not).

This emacs port provides a close feature set to that from GNU/Linux.
Thanks a million to make it available to emacs 23. I will use it heavily
and see if it is also stable.

Best wishes,
