I supposed it was that way.  So this is no surprise, but it is

If the code to do the hard work were in Emacs, we could probably
easily make it work on other systems.  And we could more or less take
for granted someone would soon do so.  So it would be ok to install.

Since the implementation is mostly in MacOS, making it work on
GNU/Linux is a bigger job.  We must stand firm and say, "If you want
this to work on MacOS, implement it for GNU."
