Restoring PPC, SDK 10.4/10.5 and GCC 4.0 Support to Xcode4

Actually, it _was_ done for technical reasons. Not because it wasn't possible to do it, but because they didn't want to spend technical resources to support and maintain it.

Apple seemingly can do more with their technical staff then other companies because they're ruthless about leaving technologies behind. When they decide they've gotten all the distance out of something, they drop it and it slowly starts to bit rot.

Will this work for XCode 4? Sure. And probably for 4.1. And maybe for 4.2. Possibly for 4.3. Until it stops working. And you have no recourse when it does stop working. So plan accordingly.
