I'm game either way. I've heard no serious issues with the 64-bit version,
so we could "default" to it, or only build it. At this point, only 5+ year
old machines or folks still on 10.5 would be out.

I don't think this will pose an issue. I now have a Lion machine and
bleeding-edge Mac, so I'll be able to ensure that that configuration works

Yup! My plan is to make this both part of the installer, and an installed
script this time 'round. The script was very new last time, but many have
used it now and it seems to work for all, so I'm ready to include it by
