i talked to h1kari on 19c3. he did not mention that he wishes a port. 
he has a tibook and a macos x himself, so i dont know what i should 
think of this.

the long lists are not a special problem of kismac, but of tables on 
macos x. these cannot refresh a single row, but it seems that you have 
to refresh always the whole table. and if you do this ever 0.25 seconds 
as kismac. then it will break down. one has to program an alternative 
table module.
