I've seen the same change made a few times in the past (I'd have to
search for it). Looking at other bugzilla's, Mozilla puts Intel Mac
bugs under PC...after all, since they've moved to x86, for all intents
and purposes, Intel Macs are PC's (especially if running Linux rather
than OS X). Those running OS X still can be identified as such by the
OS field.

Yes, my goal was to separate x86/ppc bugs.
