Do I have this straight:

1. *Until* I upgrade to Tiger (proably a few months), I can keep 
working on 10.3, and what I build (using Apple-distributed framework 
2.3 and wxPython 2.5.3.x or 2.5.4.x when I upgrade that) will work on 
*both* 10.3 and 10.4?

2. Once I upgrade, I will need to keep a 10.3 partition around until I 
decide to stop supporting 10.3, if ever? Not a cheery prospect, but I 
want to make sure I at least understand what it is.
