Well, almost nothing. Support for OSX 10.4 and earlier was dropped a while back
because trying to maintain compatibility in the code is a nightmare. I can't
even compile anything for pre-Leopard systems anymore in XCode because of
conflicting sdk problems. There are also features in the newer engines that
won't work with older OSX versions, and those would have to be disabled. Anyone
who would take this project on would only do it as a labor of love for a
diminishing installed base and a code maintenance headache.
