Some folks prefer 64-bit applications. Tiger doesn't support that much 64-bit hardware, starting with Mac OS X 10.4.8. Tiger has working ATSUI, so a 64-bit XeTeX based on CoreText would be a nice add-on and alternative, maybe useful to compare the results of the two different cores.

When I mentioned compilers and OS dependencies I did not intend to recommend anything. I think making it available for Leopard would be nice. At some time I was not able to compile XeTeX on PPC Leopard.
