I've been using Mac Port since march and it is really great!
While NS port looks ugly, and works with problems (it has problems with C-g, 
font rendering, modifier keys, multiprocessing, networking).
NS port may be used on GNUStep, but not on osx.

I don't. I'm using homebrew, and console version of emacs in /usr/local is fine 
for me.
But it is nice to have it as an option.

Agree, GUI animation in Mac port is unnecessary. The less GPU, the more battery.

And how much maintainer wants? You may count on me + one or two :)
