Did a direct upgrade on a PPC G5 Dual, Powerbook G4 and MacBook Pro.  
No problems in any case except the character set defaulting to Arabic,  
and that was pretty annoying but was easily fixed :)

Is it safe? Is anything on a computer 'safe'? Don't know about GW-TeX  
settings or i-installer, I just use plain vanilla MacTeX on TeXLive.

You may prefer what you like ;) Not had any problems with X11 or gv.
