Hello Geoff,

    I like the prioritization;   Do you think that the stuff in "HIGH"
can be achieved by the 1.2.6 release?

    Hopefully if we get that out of the way, we can get some folks from
the OSX community to help out with the MEDIUM/LOW tasks.

    Another thing that might be a useful contribution is to have someone
develop an OSX "theme", something that tries to mimic some of the OSX
UI.   Am not sure how far this can go though.
