As anyone trying to run the Humble Indie Bundle #3 games on Mac OS X 
10.5 learned this week: linking against the latest SDK will make your 
app not work on anything older than Snow Leopard, regardless of the APIs 
you call.  :(

(it inserts a new load command in the Mach-O headers that 10.5 doesn't 
understand. It is infuriating, because users have no idea what to do 
with it, and even developers end up googling the error message.)

With that caveat: maybe Apple won't do that to you again!!
