At the expense of having yet another application to maintain.
If someone has a strong desire for it, by all means do it. I would just
caution that it implies specific dedication to port all new features to
yet another application.
Speaking of which, I thought I remember someone already poking at a Mac
OS X client... let me see if I can find it.
I wasn't able to find it off-hand. I believe it was based on some other
popular Mac client. I *think* it was Versions:
However, that name is *awful* for searching.
Anyway, I suppose it became vaporware since it doesn't seem to be active
enough to have continued attention.
