I switched it to "Linux/Unix and Windows". I'm happy to add Mac OS X to 
the list and to add it to the Mac OS X category, but I'd like to see a 
binary linked from bibletime.info first, since that's where the 
CrossWire links point.

Let us know when a Mac binary is posted (other than just to bt-devel) 
and we can add it to the Mac list.

I put "BibleTime" in the position of the previous "it", which should 
communicate your intent.
