I hadn't read it like that.  I understood it more like a general point 
being made.  libsigsegv seems to be known with Darwin7, not with 8.  The 
model in Darwin8 is different, and supports POSIX sigsegv stuff where 
Darwin7 needs some Darwin7 specific code, apparently like Darwin5 did. 
To me, this package just works on both Panther and Tiger, but it could 
have been that it wouldn't on one of them.
