i remember some time back when the newworlds were first introduced
apple said that gestalts were deprecated and not to use them anymore
(since obviously they are totally faked under the newworld
architecture).  you might search apple's developer crap for what they
suggest doing instead, iirc it was something more sensible like `check
for the actual part you need, rather then just assuming certain models
all have the same hardware configuration'.
