Even though GtkAda programs compile and run on Mac OS X
(with X installed), the usability of the programs is so
lacking [1] that I find it unreasonable to include Mac OS X
on the list of platforms supported by GtkAda.



[1] I never managed to get short-cut keys for buttons and
    menus to work on Mac OS X (neither using the Alt, nor
    the Apple/Command key) even though they work quite fine
    on Linux (using the Alt key).
