Your example speaks of a no-longer supported browser for an abandoned  
(for years now) operating system.  I'm all for supporting a large  
audience, but I'm going to be blown away if we're talking about %1 of  
typical traffic here.  That seems like a minimal risk hit to take, if  
you ask me.

It can be.  Remember, TextMate is all about automation.  Build a  
command and turn conversion and upload into a single keystroke.
