When referring to Mac OS, the docs often mean Mac OS 9 and earlier,  
while Mac OS X is often explicitly referred to. In this case, the  
docs are correctly stating that the systemWindow property does not  
work on Mac OS 9 and earlier. I have to idea why this was never  
implemented, as system windows do exist on Mac OS 9.
