Dropping Carbon support under OS X

We would like to remove the old Mac OS X port using Carbon in the upcoming 3.1.0 release because we think nobody should be using it any longer (and we definitely know that nobody building 64 bit applications does because Carbon just doesn't exist in 64 bits) and it would make things simpler for us. But "should" and "is" are different things and if there are more than a handful of people who are still using Carbon and can't migrate to wxOSX/Cocoa port (I'd like to know why!), but, at the same time, still plan to update to 3.2 in the observable future, we could reconsider this. So if you'd like Carbon to continue to be supported, please let us know, in the comments here or on the mailing list. Thanks!
