After trying a few different ways to hack on Catalyst apps on my Mac, I
eventually gave up and installed Parallels and Debian. The Debian instance
NFS-mounts /Users from the host so I can use native Mac applications to edit
the files.

Macs are great pointy-drooly no-nonsense desktop boxes. They're not so great
as Unix workstations.
