I'll admit that my mac development experience ended about ten years ago, but my reading of the notes from then and now both suggest that Carbon is a Toolbox replacement/bridge tool, and that it is being phased out over time. I believe that your information is more up-to-date than mine, but my reading of the notes on Carbon seems to state clearly that the entire thing is deprecated and will eventually go away. I trust you when you say that this is not a practical concern for the Mac port today. Do you believe that it is also not a practical concern for main-line Emacs over the next few years?
Several years ago I moved from being primarily a programmer to primarily writing (structured) english text. I use flyspell-mode and org-mode more or less constantly (a quick look suggest that I've written at least 150k words using this combination this year).
What problems do you see with flyspell-mode that I don't see? Maybe I don't know what I'm missing. :-)
Absolutely! I did not intend anything I said to imply otherwise, or to impugn your valuable contributions to Emacs. I simply meant to point out that the Mac port is intentionally and, it seems, permanently `behind' the leading edge of Emacs development. Since it does not appear that that situation will ever change, it is (at least somewhat) counter-productive to recommend to emacs developers on the emacs-devel mailing list that developers switch to an older (but stable) fork, rather than work on improving the mainline.
