On the OS X side, I'd like to propose:

 - removing PowerPC support
 - removing Carbon support
 - removing OS X 10.5 support
 - removing Apple-gcc 4.2 support
 - removing Xcode 3.x support

If there's consensus, I volunteer to gut the relevant stuff.

I can also use clang-modernize to introduce nullptr usage, if that's something we're ready to do in master now.  nullptr can be pretty easily emulated on older compilers, like ITK does.
