IOW, Apple has already deprecated Carbon on 64-bit platforms. The Carbon GUI libs are not present in 64-bit Leopard.

Apple will certainly keep large portions of what were formerly known as Carbon (i.e., the non-GUI parts) because even parts of Cocoa rely on these as well.

But going forward (i.e., when everything is 64-bit), you simply won't be able to do GUIs using Carbon - Apple isn't porting the Carbon GUI libs to 64-bit.
