I'm sure they were thinking of the port of LaTeX combined with the Aqua 
interface. The port is Gerben Wierda's, and I think that they mistakenly 
didn't include the necessary companion code by Gerben Wierda. We should 
all recognize Richard, Dirk, Gerben, ... the list goes on, for the 
significant efforts they put forth as a group in supporting the Mac 
LaTeX community. Richard is very gracious in pointing out the 
contributions of others, and that group deserves a nice pat on the back, 
with Richard (and Gerben?) as the nut/s who had this little seed of an 
idea about 1.5 years ago. Well done, congratulations, and thank you.


PS. It's too easy to slight everyone else who has written/ported code. 
Never have so many, owed so much, to so few, except for the Battle of 
Britain. Sorry, couldn't resist. A sincere thanks too all.
