It got documented in 10.10, so this is no longer an issue. I tested it
with 10.9.10 as there were (non-related) regressions in 10.10, and it
worked fine there, so I figured it should be OK to require only 10.9. If
you still think using a non-documented feature is shady, I can bump the
requirement to 10.10.
