The reason why the Mac port doesn't support multi-tty with
GUI (TTY-only multi-tty is supposed to work) is there's no way to
detach Emacs as a GUI application from Window Server or Dock
without terminating the GUI process, as far as I know.  IIRC the
W32 port doesn't support multi-tty with GUI.  Maybe for simlar

One way to solve this cleanly is to seperate GUI process from
Lisp process.  It might be a future direction, but I don't think
it's something I should do now for the port of Emacs 23.
