Bram, you are too good :-) How many projects out there just follow
the author's whims? Who ever heard of ASKING for user feedback?
Does the poll on vim.org still get hit often - that would be a good
way to get a democratic answer - on the other hand, you might get a
whole bunch of windows users saying no :-)
With my 2 cents I definitely vote to drop os-9 support.
It's been 4-5 years since apple supported os-9, and it's been about
as long since I last ran an os-9 app.
Cheers, and thanks for asking!
