Me again.

At the risk of giving Maarten an absolute heart attack, I wanted to  
suggest something that might improve Blender's python capabilities on  

This could be a dead end, but I stumbled across some documentation on  
Apple's Developer web site that indicated that many OpenGL functions,  
including the troublesome glClearColor, are UNSUPPORTED in the Carbon  
framework. I know that most if not all of blender's OS X work has been  
done in the Carbon framework (since the cocoa framework isn't even  
referenced), and I wonder if this is a problem that won't go away until  
we switch to Cocoa?

Here's the reference:

I really hope that I'm wrong here, but if I'm right, is it just a  
matter of changing references to Carbon.h to Cocoa.h and linking  
against the Cocoa.framework instead of Carbon.framework?

How could this be tested?
