To be clear, the need for tsr or cfr is not limited to GUI
applications; it's needed by anything using CoreFoundation and
therefore requiring CFRunLoop. Many non-GUI applications require a
CFRunLoop. Server applications that want to use any of the above-BSD
OS X toolkits (eg. via PyObjC) will fall into this camp.
I expect to be in this category eventually, though I have been
avoiding it to date because PyObjC isn't presently included in OS X.

Well, you just got this spiffy XServe. Is it not capable of
running a tsr buildbot? Would it be hard to maintain? (I seriously
have no clue.)
