Comment on "The Reasons for Leopard-Only Apps"

Theoretically, is it possible for Apple to ship an update to 10.4 that enables GC? Sounds like the other Objective-C 2.0 changes are mostly syntactic sugar, handled at compile time.

If GC could be backported to the Obj-C runtime on 10.4, developers could still take advantage of it while not completely abandoning customers slow to move to 10.5. That would be awfully nice.
