I wonder why that is still the case. GTK+, the toolkit that GIMP uses,
has a native OS X backend for quite a while and from what I heard it has
come to the point where it works rather well. Other GTK+ applications,
such as gedit for example, are being released on Mac OS X without the
need for X11.

Someone needs to package and support a build of GIMP for the native OS X
GTK+ port. Why no one has done this until now remains a mystery to me.
Is the OS X community sitting on their hands?
