Meh, who cares about mac? ;)

On a serious note, perhaps this patch was/is big enough that it would've
warranted an actual development branch in the main repo to allow for easier
testing and merging by more people while it progresses? It won't magically
solve any problems of course, but it might be worth reconsidering the
"branching policy" now that we've used git for a while and people are more
used to it?
