The only omissions on the list of client software I can think of are the "Smartphone" ones. Given how dire they are I don't think you need add them!

Have you heard about DelFibs? There is even a thread around in this forum. The developer seems to be lost - or does anyone know how to contact him?

I tried Delfibs at the time the developer was actively working with it. It is nice in some respects, but, like cocoafibs, it has some flaws and bugs which aren't likely to get fixed now.

I liked a few things about it too, but the developer did not want to release the source for others to work on.
So it is likely dead now along with many others

Tom...I am not a coder, but stepfibs was started, and is definitely open source...if you can do anything with that one, it is free to be tinkered with.  The ideas were big, the time commitment wasn't  ;)

Also cocoafibs was made open source - and is rather nice, if the bugs were fixed  ;)
