Are we sure this is a good idea? It would certainly make the code tidier and easier to manage, but it would limit to iOS 3.2 and above - thereby excluding iOS 3 users on the iPhone (and original iPhone users), right?

@amjaliks

At the moment it is only idea. :)

I agree, that it necessary to keep RM compatible to oldest SDK supported by App Store.
It is quite easy to make RM to fallback to current solution, if an app is running under 3.1.3 or older version. And for 3.2 and newer to use UIGestureRecognizer. Of course, if we keep legacy code, the code won't become tidier.

I don't want to implement to UIGestureRecognizer, just because I don't know where to invest my time. :) I hope UIGestureRecognizer may solve my #88.

It's definitely a tricky one - I've recently decided to drop pre-4 support in an app I'm developing, and it's the one of the best decisions I've ever made, makes life so much easier. We do have to drop legacy support at some point, it's just a question of how soon!

I am going to paste our discussion to mailing list.
