Pinentry-mac is one project we’ve „revived“ and thus only added stuff on top of the old code instead of refactoring it.
We’ve been planning to do that for a long time now though, so we’ll definitely look into that and check out how other UIs do it, like GTK.

It would be really helpful if you could instead create a new subdirectory cocoa and do it like the other pinentries. That would allow to review it more easily (only the new directory needs to be reviewed) and would allow upstreaming it. I think that would be a lot more helpful than having a pinentry-mac fork.
