I was pondering the wiki idea for saving an accessible copy of the old  
files, then realized that there are other older Mac files in there  
also, not referenced from the site any more.  I wonder if I should  
just point the Mac link on the platform/index.html directly to the  
wiki, and leave the Mac files there, unlinked.

Or am I too preoccupied with retaining a historical record, and I  
should just delete the lot?  SVN retains a history (duh!), just like  
the wiki, just not as easily accessible.
