There is no timeline.
Every now and then in the past people staretd to work on porting PA to
MacOSX but unfortunately nobody really pushed all the way through with
Some patches have been merged that allowed PA to compile on MacOS at
those times. But there never was an output module so it probably was
not useful for much.

I have no idea what airfoil is. If you use PA's raop support it will
allow PA to contact an Airport and make its audio device available for
local clients. PA in this way acts as iTunes compatible client.
The other way round, i.e. making PA act as Airport audio device cannot
be implemented right now, since Apple is an evil company and uses
cryptography to dongle iTunes and the Airport together and only one of
the two cryptographic keys have been recovered.

I'd suggest porting PA to MacOSX and finish it.
