Of course, maybe I just forgot about it.  Do we have a bug-number(s) for
the corresponding problem(s)?

I had hoped to try to merge some of the mac port changes after
the last round of discussion indicated that merging was, let's
say unlikely. Aside from reliability issues in both ports (which
I assume are bugs to be hunted and killed as normal), I think the
biggest issue is the color space and font handling. Whether or
not this bothers you depends on your personal settings, in my
experience - when I first started looking into this, I used a set
of colors and fonts that really didn't show any important (to me)
differences between the two, but I have since started using a
zenburn theme that really highlights the issue. I'm including a
clipping that I hope illustrates the issue, with the mac port on
the left and the ns port on the right.

I'm hoping to take another shot at merging display approaches
when the ports line up again for 24.3, but I wouldn't wait anyone
to rely on me - I'm not familiar with the subsystems involved,
and my free time is sporadic.

I hope this helps,
