If by "Tor-only" packages you mean the old "expert" packages, we decided

Sounds like we should do a better job of declaring a policy on what
platforms we're trying to make work, and a better job of getting feedback
from users when we ponder changes in this policy. Last I heard, Nick
was working on a proposed policy draft so we can at least get a handle
on where things stand currently. The challenge is that we have neither
enough developers nor enough (trustworthy) build machines to support
everything out there.

I missed that line in the OP. Since my particular machine runs a single user and is logged in 24/7, I simply run the Vidalia package as a relay and set it to start on login. Since this package is the one I imagine the majority of Tor users on OSX will be running, it would be nice to see it updated to 2.2.18a/0.2.10. Not to mention that the switch to Intel processors was a relatively recent one, as far as computer turnover goes, and there are still plenty of users out there running PPC machines.

I agree that dropping the expert packages might be a good idea, but I don't see a reason that the Vidalia bundles should fall behind.
