It was probably me, and I do :)

Yeah, the two things I'm (kind of) working on are having OpenMCL send 
Apple Events, and then (in some far-off future) allowing OpenMCL to be 
an Apple Event handler (I _think_ this requires that OpenMCL be 
embeddable in C, but I'm probably just missing something).

In any case, when I say "working on", I mean "not really". Haven't 
really had any time to put into this, but I _am_ pounding away on 
OpenMCL on a daily basis, so I guess that counts for something.
