   of course, my first question about the regression tests is...
     Will it work on the Mac?



Of course.  Once it's ported.  Good luck (-:

But seriously...

In fact, as discussed at the last tuesday meeting, the mechanism for
starting up the backend as a separate process and shutting it down is
inherently operating system dependent.  (Whether done in C++ or csh)
It turned out to be a very small amount of code, but took a long time
to figure out.  Somehow I don't that process control under MacOS is
going to easier to figure out than unix.  So seriously, good luck.
