The main reason why I'm keeping the support for older versions is to
see whether the code has enough quality about tolerance of version
difference, not depending on some specific behavior of particular
implementation, in hope that this will also enhance compatibility with
future versions.  Of course, supporting too old versions can do harm
than good, and actually I dropped Mac OS X 10.1 support on the
transition from Emacs 22 Carbon+AppKit port to Emacs 23 Mac port.
