In my experience and to be frank, cross-platform stacks or  
standalones must be tested on each platform (there always some  
difference*) and standalones  built on the platform they are made for**.

* For instance, pop-up menus respond to mouseDown on MAcOS and  
mouseUp on other platforms.
** This avoids to have a conversion IsoToMac or MacToIso of all  
scripts at opening without speaking of the conversion on-the-fly of  
some custom properties and external files.
