in WWDC they said loud and clear that QuickDraw is going to be
deprecated in Tiger. They would be doing no new development to it
and they would not break it. What happened when Tiger was out was
that the deprecation was not announced widely. For example I do not
get any warnings about that while compiling Vim but on the other hand
in "Introduction to Quartz Programming..." there is a note that QD
And apparently they did something that caused Vim to break. Not nice,
maybe I should file a bug although they seldom help much.

other hand darcs, which I've tested briefly, sounds like a very good

I can't share the darcs repository directly from my powerbook, but I
guess it's possible to just rsync the repository to a website for
sharing with others, right?
