#24 Platform ports

We are definitely looking into ports (Mac OSX and Solaris being the top two contenders). Solaris shouldn't be too hard -- what's a bit harder is to do the Mac OS X port, since it would be a shame to do a 'low-quality' OS X port. The biggest issue on OS X is porting Scintilla, which is our text editor 'widget', which we've shoehorned into Mozilla as a plugin.

As usual, porting is only half of the battle -- testing and support are just as important in figuring out the economics of this kind of decision.

Cheers,
