I was imagining such an extra program or perhaps just a command line switch 
that can be triggered via a “shortcut".  

We can have xboard relay stuff to the terminal app which is Cocoa based. I 
wonder how that would work...

But I fear I am not really a programer.  Just a fairly knowledgable tinkerer.  
Hence why there isn’t a cocoa version in the first place. Although VO aside 
this hasn’t been much of a problem with OSX integration and has made 
maintainability much easier.  I’m working on learning, but I don’t see getting 
to C/C+ for a long time. Harm is really the person to talk to, If he isn’t too 
busy.  But he doesn’t have a mac.
