Just to add another voice in the discussion...

I agree totally with Rodney. I was just about to send a message in the
same flavor to the mailing list, when I received his message!

Just to illustrate my point more clearly:
  At work, we are developing a high level mathematical software that whe
  would like to see distributed on as many plattforms as possible. In
  this case, CLIM is a wonderful tool.
  But when I come home from work, I change into a plain Mac hacker who
  loves the Mac, loves to program Macintosh games, etc...

I think a lot of us MCL'ers are in the same situation!?
