For a "proof-of-concept", implementations are needed for enough of the
framework to make it obvious it can be make to work with GUI API's that
follow the same general model. Particularly the
event/callback/other-flow-of-control mechanisms. I know that Windows and X
Window are major API's that follow very different flow-of-control models.
Is the Mac sufficiently different to be an important proof-of-concept case?
Are there others?
