Yeah, but you can make a similar argument about 10.5 being the last to
support ppc, and 10.4 being the last to support Classic. It doesn't
really translate into a sufficient reason to make MacPorts officially
supported on those platforms.

(Note that I am not saying that you don't have good reasons for sticking
with an older platform, or that I support the removal of backward
compatibility in OS X...)
