I do hope you're not planning on connecting your Tiger system to the  
internet after the Snow Leopard release. Apple doesn't issue security  
updates for anything but the current and previous versions of the OS.  
There are some pretty significant issues with OS X security,  
especially in the browser, so it'd be a good idea to disconnect all  
Tiger systems upon 10.6's release.

This also makes it reasonable to me to drop Tiger support when Snow  
Leopard arrives. And if the current trunk version of CCL is planned  
for stable release after the Snow Leopard release, it seems reasonable  
to me to drop Tiger support in trunk immediately.
