Interesting, because with the Emacs (from emacsforosx.com), I have
been hitting 100% cpu problem again and again lately. I had tried out
this port, but I hit 2 issues and put it aside:

- with the same theme (solarized-dark), the background with the
railwaycat port is darker!  minor issue, of course. 
- gnus (when trying to access nntps servers with gnutls) gets
stuck. I'll need to debug that, unless someone has a trick up their

I may just give it a try for my regular work, I run gnus in a
different Emacs, so that can continue to run on the other port.
