Sure. I'm surprised you endorse the NS port instead of the Mac or Aqua
ports :-).

I use iTerm2.app and xterm.
The comparison doesn't hold as the OSX gui frontend of GNU Emacs
is not as well maintained and tested as the X frontend.
Therefore it makes a difference which future path is selected and
limited resources are used for. If Carbon is deprecated and we already
have a Cocoa frontend, enhancing that seems like a better plan to me.

Would you consider porting over missing bits into the --with-ns frontend?
