[phenixbb] Mac OSX Phenix GUI

This is a question/request to the phenix developers. Are there any  
plans to make the new phenix GUI to use an X11 python interface  
instead of the Aqua one? The reason I ask is that we use Mac OSX  
servers for calculations here and an X11 interface would be a lot more  
appropriate for this configuration. That way users could export the  
GUI to their local workstations. As it is implemented now this use of  
the GUI is impossible on Mac OSX.

Before someone makes the suggestion: Remote Desktop simply allows to  
share the only Aqua desktop that the server can produce, that is, only  
one user can access the Aqua desktop, whether remotely or locally.

We would be happy to test any X11 version you might be willing to  

Thanks for your great software, which we can use anyway from the  
command line :-)

Best regards,
