Privacy, Security, Encryption As he had already predicted, cracker Charlie Miller has won the PWN2OWN contest by cracking Safari and Mac OS X within seconds of the start of the competition. "It took a couple of seconds. They clicked on the link and I took control of the machine," Miller said after his accomplishment. He took home the USD 10000 prize, as well as the MacBook he performed the exploit on. Internet Explorer 8 fell a while later by cracker Nils, who also cracked Safari and Firefox after being done with IE8.

Obj-C 2.0 is just the language, the compiled binaries can work on 10.4, only XCode 3 requires Leopard. Garbage Collection is opt-in on Leopard, and a separate binary for 10.4 wouldn't include it.

As you said:
a separate binary.
I doubt that Apple would release two versions of Safari for OS X
