There is a time to let things go, and the time for IE on the Mac is  
now.  Don't feel guilty.  Think about it as a public service to the  
rest of the world.  You are helping to stop web designers having to  
worry about IE on the Mac (now they only have to concentrate on IE  
for Win!)

It is the same thing as asking how many Apple G3 processor machines  
are out there?  Maybe 1% of Macs ?  If that is that case, does that  
mean you have to sacrifice the speed of delivery for 99% of people  
because you need to make it work for the 1% ?

Let it go, don't feel guilty.
