Actually the latest ones do again (2.4, the first version with Carbon
support, made Appearance Manager calls that aren't in 7.x that caused
crashes).  And as I recall you could always run the 68K engine on
7.X.  You probably won't be able to install or run RR there, though,
just MetaCard and/or your standalone application.
