CLIM 1 should exist any month now for the Mac. 
CLIM 2, the version with more mac-like look and feel, isn't even
announced for the Mac as far as I know.
CLIM 2 is however at least close to done on a bunch of other platforms.

Right. My point here is that one way to get to CLIM 2 on the Mac
may be to use x-windows and some other vendor's CLIM 2 that
does make use of X-windows. Going through the extra x-windows step
may prove to be slow or otherwise impractical. But without Apple support,
CLIM-2 on the Mac may be a long time coming.
