We should make sure they get bug fixes. They're still more than a
third of our user base.
The problem is that if we start rewriting stuff with Leopard-only
APIs, providing bug fixes for Tiger users becomes much, much harder
(since you have to find the bug twice, and maybe fix it twice).
So I think we should continue with the original plan, of switching to
10.5-only closer to the release date of 10.6.

Do these problems in SearchKit still exist in Tiger? Do they still
exist in Leopard?
