[OS X TeX] Updating MacTex and Mac OS X

Dear all,

I am currently running Mac OS X 10.4.11 with MacTex-2007 on a  
MacBook. Everything is fine regarding TeX.

Now, I 'd like to upgrade from Tiger to Snow Leopard without giving  
up a nice working TeX installation.

According to you, what is the best option?

1. Waiting for the MacTex-2009 distribution prior to upgrade to Snow  
Leopard and then updating both (OS and TeX distribution)?
2. Using MacTeX-2007 on Snow Leopard (if feasible)?
3. Upgrading to Snow Leopard and then installing MacTex-2008 (or vice  
versa) and then fixing the small bugs as described at tug.org/mactex?

Thanks a lot in advance for any advice!

Regards, Christoph
