|OS version specific plugin fragments [message #716968]

In our RCP app we have a plugin that uses 3rd party native code libraries, which we supply in plugin fragments for various OSs. This has worked fine, but now we have a problem that in the latest version of the libraries, they need different binaries for different versions of Mac OSX ( 10.5 & 10.6).
There doesn't seem to be a way to specify this in the feature manifest 'environment combinations' tab as they're both using the same OS (there's only 1 option - 'MacOSX') , window system, language and architecture (x86)).
For various reasons we need to use the 32 bit version of these libraries even on 10.6, so we can't distinguish between the libraries on the basis of their target architecture.
Has anyone come across a solution to this (I'd imagine it might involve some dynamic loading of a fragment depending on the OS version but don't know where to start with this).
