i've got mash running natively on mac osx and am in the process of
checking the changes into the mash cvs repository.  i haven't
tinkered with the video capture drivers at all but it should be
functional for receiving.  for video transmission, i noticed that
a mac video producer service using quicktime was recently checked
in to the ag cvs repository but i haven't tried it myself.

of course, this isn't all that useful without rat for audio, i
don't have any idea if anybody is actively working on that.

it wasn't taken over.  the project funding ran out so we no longer
have a full-time staff programmer but we're still hosting the
cvs repository and using the toolkit.
