In addition, we do actually have a 'chromium-mac'; we don't have a
'chromium-mac-snowleopard'. I think I mixed that in my mind while
typing this with the apple mac ports, where there are mac-leopard,
mac-sl, and mac ports (the latter representing lion/future).

Once Lion ships, chromium will undoubtedly add a chromium-mac-snowleopard dir.
