Bas:  As of 10.6 Server and 10.7 you can run a VM of Mac OS X on a Mac.  It’s really great for keeping the older version around.  I run a 10.6 Server VM so that we can continue supporting older OSes with our externals.  That might be a better option if you need to support older clients,  especially since 10.10 is right around the corner as well.
