It may appear to be still working right now, but there is no guarantee
that it will work at all. Even if it seems to be working now, later
updates will cause problems. For example updates will link to a
different set of new system libraries.

Although cumbersome, the migration procedure ensures that everything
keeps working after upgrading to a new OS X release.
