I didn't mean to imply that there was a problem; I meant merely to
"give props" to Andrew Choi and whoever else works on mac-emacs.
Unfortunately IMHO emacs folks tend not to think of the mac as an
"emacs-capable" platform, and mac folks (at least the ones I know)
tend not to be aware of emacs, or gnu tools generally. (or cmdline
anything :-)

broadening horizons? or failing ?-) address@hidden
