Sadly, there's no way to figure out how many OS X 10.3 users exist.
This number is probably the most important one to take into account

Assuming Apple supports OSs as long as there're fair amount of users,
this might be a good idea to support MacPorts on OSs Apple officially supports.
(10.3 - 10.5?)
Letting Apple decidess it might be a better
