There is a TODO on the NS event loop and redraw.

I looked at the Mac port font code and it uses Carbon.  That means that we 
still have to keep the current backend around for GNUStep.  So there is no gain 
in bringing it in w.r.t. maintenance, quite the opposite.

The work is basically "bring in a new font end".  If I have to specify more 
details than that, it will take longer time than actually do the work.
