Good point.  However, I've tried hard to get the Mac support for
DSF-GDB to work as well as CDI.  In fact, we had reached that point
until last night, when new patches were committed to CDI :-)
I am all for continuing to make CDI work whenever the community
contributes patches.  However, I am hoping that efforts put towards
CDI are not taken away from DSF-GDB, as this is probably not the most
efficient way to proceed.
Mac is a good example again in this case, as we got good patches for
DSF-GDB as soon as we were clear that this was the future for CDT,
instead of focusing on CDI.

I'm hoping that we can get some traction through such efforts and that
more and more DSF-GDB patches will come in to fix whatever issues there
are that affect a specific platform/community.

Exactly my point. The community decides. The Mac community has decided to fix CDI first. The best we can do is try and influence them, which we have done. But we are an open community and that's what the community has decided.

BTW, I do hope people realize there is huge potential on the Mac. Most Mac developers I've talked to aren't very happy with XCode. But maybe that's why they are talking to me :).
