I do not think that Panther should be supported but Tiger should. Less
extreme point of view: may be separate Panther distribution.

And methink that PPC and Intel distributions should be separate or
installer should be smart and install only correct binaries.

PS AFAIK TeXLive 2008 is only release candidate, not the final one.
Probably one of the reasons is that pdftex-1.40.8 is still rc, not the
(and since it was announced that 1.40.8 will be final in 1.40.x series
it seems to be worth waiting for it).

Thank you and Robert Koch very much for your work!

Best. Victor
