I wouldn't mind if we don't support 10.5 or 10.6 either.  10.4 is definitely a
no-brainer to me.

Not quite sure.  Only if we have to.  Remove the old ATSU stuff.  Start adding
CoreText when it makes sense.  Right now the backend does without CoreText
because what we need is very simple to do with CGFont (scale by em-size).  This
works because OS X almost fully supports subpixel-positioned text, so there's
little hinting to worry about.
