Could be, but only if they violated their license agreement for
Codewarrior, the Mac OS X beta versions of which specifically shipping
an app compiled with them.  But both Codewarrior 6 and the Mac OS X
public beta finally shipped this week and the MetaCard "carbonization"
process is already done, and so it shouldn't be too long a wait before
we'll be able to start public testing of the new engine.

But you should keep in mind that the final release of Mac OS X is
many, many months away and while it might make a good development
platform before then, there probably won't be a large enough installed
base to bother with making distributions for that platform until
sometime next year.
