I like the idea of detecting what the environment can do and deciding
based on that, but I see a potential problem with this particular
approach, assuming I've read the patch at


It's doing

$ xcrun --show-sdk-version

and using the output of that to set the deployment target.

I happen to be on OS X 10.10 but have installed XCode 7.0.1, which has
a base SDK of 10.11.  If I use 10.11 as the deployment target on my
10.10 system, I would not be making binaries I could even run on my
current system would I?  To me the base SDK looks more like the
maximum features you can include and is not really suitable for
selecting the minimum system you want to target.
