Actually, it's a bit worse than that. The 2.8.1 build doesn't download
onto OSX 10.2.8, and there's a note on the download page to the effect
that it won't open (the dmg image unpacks with an error about no file
systems found). There *is* a link to "go here if you need to download
this for OSX 10.2.8, but it's a broken link to where the 2.7.4 OSX
build used to be.

Updating a 2.7 stack from the menubar goes through all the download
steps, but finally fails with a "can't update the current image"
failure. Navigating to the 2.8.1 executable that was downloaded during
this process and trying to launch it results in a silent failure.

My guess is that it's just broken and nobody tried this until now with
something as ancient as 10.2.8.
Yes, I'll bugzilla it.
