I have to disagree with you on this one. I guess the technical hurdles are not self-imposed by BW. It's the Hero Engine that doesn't support openGL but the engine developers said it will later this year (around October, I think). I'm pretty sure that as soon as that version of the engine comes out BW will test it and make the needed additional development to roll out the Mac version. The down side of buying/licensing a 3rd party engine are its own limitations. Also, if they decided to develop the engine in house, I think the game wouldn't be live by now.
