A major point in favor of switching to Mitsuharu's version would be that he
actively maintains it, whereas our only active NS port maintainer recently
stepped down.

I wouldn't even mind there being two build flavors, if each were actively
maintained; but barring that, I'd prefer something that comes with a

It used to be the case in 24.x that the NS port was unusable in some ways
(poor sub-process communication made working with GDB untenable, for example),
and as such, Mac Port was something of a necessity. But the 25.x code seems to
