Stefan, I want to bring up again the possibility of switching the Mac port
over to Yamamoto's code.  Is there any reason not to?  I just tried the ns
port again, and within minutes couldn't tolerate it:

 1. The colors are washed out, compared to Mac-Port.

 2. The leading on Courier is all wrong.  Example: The pixels from the top of
    capital letters run into the mode-line.  I need to set line-spacing to 3
    just to make text look decent.

 3. If I switch to *scratch* and turn on flyspell, I can out-type Emacs very
    easily, the lag is that bad.

Why are we sticking with the ns port again, when Yamamoto has been so active
in keeping the Mac-Port patch maintained?
