Apple has added X11 stereo support, so it should just work.  You should 
try it and let us know (because we don't have one to test on).  We have a 
report that resizing the graphics window when it is in stereo doesn't 
work, but we don't know if subsequent Apple updates fixed the problem or 
not.  If it is still a bug, the workaround would be to start chimera up 
with the size of window you want with the --geometry option.

I believe the chimera aqua version works better in stereo (and gets you 
multisampled antialiasing), but the Tk GUI has problems (which is why it 
isn't recommended).

Perhaps others on this list can share their experiences?
