Yes, that sounds fine.  I looked up the past discussions for the
rationale we'd had for upping the version requirement to 10.5:


The main issue seems to have been testing on 10.4, which sounds like you
now have resolved to your satisfaction.  We were also uncertain whether
maintaining support for such an old version was worth the effort, but
there's been ample interest voiced by users, so bringing it back does
seem like it would provide tangible value.

My only question is, I recall you mentioned there were other code
cleanups that would be made possible by dropping the 10.4 requirement?
If those cleanups were performed, then they may need to be revisited in
light of this change.

Sounds good, thanks for following up on this.
