Or even worse, Windows :-)

Precisely. When I started working on eclipse a few years ago, I was 
scratching my own itch. Unfortunately, I can no longer spare my 
(severely limited) free time for such an effort, so it will have to be 
done by somebody else.

FWIW, I was planning to start the porting effort by reusing whatever I 
could from the swt32 patches and the eclipse 3.1.2 ones. SWT has changed 
from 3.2M4, but they should be useful, nevertheless.
