While I keep my OSX binaries on my site (mainly I'm just too lazy to  
clean up), I don't keep the links (old direct links will still work,  
unless I've 'cleaned up').  I generally have links to "stable" and any  
current development version.

I thought Tom was going to switch to using frameworks at some point,  
but maybe that was just the build instructions (which are framework  
based now).

I think the idea is that if the only thing you install is Qgis, use  
the all-in-one.  Otherwise if you install GRASS, Mapserver, and/or  
PostGIS (very likely my binaries, or built from source using my  
frameworks) you will have the frameworks anyways.

But yes, it's a bit unclear.
