[vlc-devel] PATCH: OS X remove the use of setjmp()/longjmp()

It should if it did before; from a logical perspective it works the
same as before. Previously the code was using setjmp()/longjmp() to
return control back to the caller of NSApp run(). By invoking the
'stop' selector instead of 'quit' the Cocoa framework will return
control after processing the stop event. It accomplishes the same end
result, but avoid any potential side effects from using jump routines
in a managed run time environment.

I'm mainly concerned with Objective-C 2.0 which allows for automatic
garbage collection. Also, I believe the use of 'stop' is easier to
understand than the use of the setjmp() / longjmp().
