I wonder if it makes senset o port GNUstep's GSPdf to Mac? It is 
essentially a ghostscript frontend (runs gs to generate a tiff and shows 
the page) and thus supports both PS as PDF. Despite maintaining it 
occasionally I don't remember if it is pure AppKit or uses GNUstep 
extensions or non-Mac code. An eventual "port" would yield a native Mac 
app, compatible with quite old MacOS, a ballpark would be 10.5/10.6

I could look in it if there is interest.
