Rumour has it that the Mac OS X 10.5 will not have 64bit Carbon support
under Intel. That means that Intel based Carbon based apps will only ever
be 32bit and that if 32bit support is ever withdrawn (likely?) Carbon will
be gone.

I know that the FPC GUI ports under Mac OS X tend to use Carbon.... anyone
heard any definite reports on this? I know OS News has one, but that is
allegedly still hear-say. Is it even possible/practical to use Cocoa to
build a GUI and then use Pascal code to do the logic?

Apaprently Troll Tech is unhappy as they use Carbon in their Qt port for
Mac OS X...
