I really am of the opinion that our users are (on the whole) smart
enough to read the "requires 10.3.9" note on our site. Maybe we
should make *sure* that is in reasonably large letters on the site,
but I think on the whole it shouldn't be too much of a problem (and
requiring 10.3.9 is not that uncommon anymore...)
Just my 2¢
(who now will proceed to finish packing and drive to MI, honest!)
