Yes neat.

So that brings up the question, that if we use gcc3 for 10.3 (and
earlier?) compatibility, and thus link to libc v5, what happens if you
run this binary on 10.4 or later, that uses v6 of the library?

Will this just work because the v5 version of the library is there as

I guess the Mac doesn't have the Linux problem of this library simply
being missing?
