good to me. It will never be possible to build MacVim.app on 10.3 or
earlier so I also agree that we need to keep it around.

candidate since it at the moment only contains things relating to the
Carbon version. I created gui_mac.txt for all the MacVim.app related
help (this file does not exist in the Carbon version).

I am not too worried about this. Of course when something like this
eventually _does_ happen I'll surely be taken entirely be surprise
(but I can deal with it then)... ;-)
