So if you want to lend a hand there, that would be a big help. Especially on OS X, there
are some hardcodings left in our code that cause a fair bit of headache. If you'd like
to get started on that, I do have some notes here and there related to more of what needs
to be fixed.
Oh, and to highlight the problem... much of what you're seeing wrong in the code
comes from legacy C coding back in the days before Inkscape proper, when macros ruled the
land and 'puters ran on dinosaur treadmill power.
I'd like to help, but I'm afraid I don't have the spare time for it,
and don't use OSX any more. So I'm afraid I can't actually lend a hand
