 orestis, thank you for the encouragement.  i did post it on my diary:
http://advogato.org/person/lkcl/diary/523.html - i decided against
doing a full-blown article because i've been doing quite a _lot_ of
writing on advogato :) but i'm reconsidering.  will post here if i do.

 i note with interest your comments here:

whilst pyjamas and pyjamas-desktop are definitely cross-browser, cross-
desktop, cross-platform and can even be made to be cross-widget-set,
there isn't anything to substitute for _design_ ethos on a per-
platform basis.  by that i mean, expectations of there being a "File"
menu on which the word "Quit" will occur, or, as you point out, mac-
user expectations of application behaviour.
