I'm wondering why no one has made this stupid comment so far, so here I go: could this be ported to Amiga OS 3.x?
The API (QuickDraw) part looks yummy and could open the door to source-level compatibility with old Mac software (not very useful, I suppose)

Well the libs are 68k asm so that souldnt be too hard and the macpaint is in pascal ,  could be an intersting project for someone who wanted to get into programming/porting.

Ah, if I only had more time ...
The source is not that big, either. If I were doing it, I'd convert it from pascal to Modula-2 because there are excellent Amiga M2 dev systems, such as Benchmark, with source level debugging, etc. Then when you are done you would have a nice black & white paint program :D

The source for Color QuickDraw would have been far more interesting.
