What are you ripping out, exactly? I hope you're not getting rid of
Carbon too soon, because I'm in the midst of doing a Mac version of my
Python GUI using it!

Mind you, the main reason I chose to use Carbon in the first place was
so that there was some chance the same version would work on both 9
and X. But if there's never going to be a Python for MacOS 9 at all,
ever again, maybe I should just give up now and re-do it all using
PyObjC or something?
