ATSU is deprecated and replaced  by Core Text for handling unicode as of Leopard.

So, xetex has to be refractured or rewritten to use Core Text on the Mac. 
My question is how much of the code of xetex depend on ATSUI, so how hard would it be.

I am not a font tech geek or such. Maybe Mr. Kew can comment.
