Will there be a version of Hunk for MacOS anytime soon?

Explorer

I run Splunk native on my MacBook Pro (Yosemite). I also run Apache Hadoop locally.

Will there be a version of Hunk compiled for MacOS anytime soon?

Thanks

All the main distributions and Apache Hadoop website says OSX is not supported:

http://hadoop.apache.org/docs/current/hadoop-project-dist/hadoop-common/SingleCluster.html#Supported...
http://www.cloudera.com/content/cloudera/en/downloads/cdh/cdh-5-3-2.html -> System requirement
http://hortonworks.com/hdp/downloads/
http://doc.mapr.com/display/MapR/Quick+Installation+Guide#QuickInstallationGuide-prereqs

I am sure you can run Hadoop on OSX, but in order for Hunk to be officially supported on OSX, it will need Hadoop to be supported on OSX.
