[webkit-dev] A platform define for the Cocoa port?

Hi all,

While working on the wx port, I've noticed there are a number of  
places where there are __APPLE__ defines that will conflict with the  
wxWidgets port because wxWidgets uses Carbon and so the Cocoa  
defines, native data types, etc. aren't appropriate in this case.

What I was thinking is that we can add a PLATFORM(COCOA) define to  
Platform.h and define it when __OBJC__ and __APPLE__ are defined.  
Would this be an acceptable solution?  This would still cause  
conflicts with our wxCocoa port, but unfortunately development work  
on that port has stalled so IMHO the conflict is not a major issue at  
the moment. Eventually, if we do move to support wxCocoa, we could  
add some __BUILDING_WXCOCOA define and check for that in Platform.h
