Just a curiosity more than anything else but what exactly are you
targeting with Codewarrior on an Intel Mac Pro? CW will be creating
PPC code that would run under Rosetta on your Mac Pro certainly
reducing the speed of the program by significant amounts? I am
assuming you have some legacy code left over from the 10.0 through
10.3 days that you are trying to support? Otherwise I am not seeing
the benefit of using CW.

   Again, just out of morbid curiosity.
