But do we have a "leader" for the NS port, somebody in charge of that piece
willing to drive it toward perfection?  Fixing bugs as they come up is great,
but will only solve the problems for which there are reproducible bugs.  Is NS
improving in other ways?

Mac-port is gaining new capabilities with each release.  It already had
excellent fullscreen support, now it has swiping gestures and great scrolling
