Right now it's a tough decision for 10.3.9 support - personally I
don't care for it, too much hassle. But for something released to
the masses, I'll do my best to support what Apple supports. And come
10.5, my bet is that Apple drops 10.3.9 support. Let's hope that
Apple does a more thorough job of providing backward compatibility
I've also been slowly migrating Macs (~40) where I work to Tiger,
mostly as we buy new Macs with it. I hope I can finish by the
Leopard release ^_^ No Python use yet, but someday maybe - if the
GRASS GUI moves to Python.
