Or you can use the carbon API to write native apps. The native app 
things is cool, but it would be even cooler if there were a nice way to 
write GUI-based apps that ran native or native-like on multiple OSes 
with minimal porting effort. I've been contemplating making a carbon 
based backend for CLIM (or starting w/ beagle and attempting to move it 
from carbon -> cocoa).

Not that I consider my a member of the intelligencia, but I often ask 
and occasionally am able to answer questions on #lisp on freenode.
