As I understand it, nobody has ever forbidden a gnuemacs
on Macintosh. It's just that RMS won't personally put any effort
into it. Should such a port magically appear, I'm sure it would
become freely available along with the rest of the GNU distribution.
There is a fairly good standalone editor for the Mac called Alpha,
available from sumex-aim.stanford.edu:/info-mac/app/alpha-403.hqx.
It has many emacs-like features, including emacs-like keybindings,
but it's not exactly the same thing.
