Thanks, Chad, this highlights a reason beyond the personal why I'd like Mac
Port in the main-line: I recommend it every Mac user I know, but many are not
willing to go through the extra effort of patching their sources to build it.
Instead, they download binaries from emacsformacosx.com, and never get to
experience how nice Emacs can be on OS X.
