I don't think a GUI library should ever be using X11 on OSX. Not
only does it have issues like forcing you to download XQuartz
manually and not being officially supported by Apple anymore, but
more importantly, it doesn't support high DPI. High DPI support
is crucial for any new GUI libraries, as more and more laptops
and monitors are switching to high res screens (and Macs in
particular are very quickly switching towards a retina focus).
