Mojca, I don't think that support for 10.5 will be greatly missed
because the real threshold system number was 10.6. It was after 10.6
that something really new took off, and I think most users still running
an old machine had updated to 10.6 at the time. So, I have no objections
to dropping support for 10.5 which was released eleven years ago.

Best regards,
