In the old days, I think we could not use Apple's runtime because of the subtle 
incompatibilities between the Apple and the gnu runtimes. Plus, the last time I 
tried this a while back, there were problems with incompatible definitions for 
things like MAC_OS_X_VERSION_10_x and MAC_OS_X_VERSION_MAX_ALLOWED, which would 
break a lot of stuff. Given that these have changed now and that the APIs of 
Apple's new runtime and David's runtime should be (more or less) the same, it 
might actually be possible to use Apple's runtime now. At least it would be 
worth another try.
