Is there any way in COFFEE (either by hacking it or by some hidden function, to return the currently active camera (not active as in selected, but active as in the one you're currently looking through)?
If not... anyone fancy making a version of the C++ SDK that's compatible with Apples free ProjectBuilder?

No, that's not possible.
Such a ProjectBuilder (and perhaps GCC or Borland C++ on the PC side) project would be nice, but I don't have the time or skill myself.

I have looked into using free compilers for C4D plugins myself, but unfortunately this is close to impossible, because the ABI's (object format, virtual table layout, member pointer layout) are different.
So you either use MSVC on Windows and Metrowerks on the Mac or you will have to manually convert all objects at the border between C4D and the plugin. This alone would be an awful lot of work, which gets even worse, because the object formats are not fully documented.
The problem looks a bit better on Windows, because you can get MSVC for free.
