You may be correct in the strict sense of "OS X application" but this is the
first vendor I've seen that says they will support OS X. With the others,
it's "if you can get it to work on OS X, great, but we won't support it".

Any Python IDE that works under X11, so long as it's endian safe, is 
going to work perfectly fine under OS X if you make XDarwin a 
requirement.  What's the point?  It's not going to look or feel quite 
like an OS X application, it shouldn't really be called an OS X 
application with a disclaimer that it requires an X11 subsystem to make 
it tick.
