There's now a far bigger reason for this: PHP4 EOL has been announced!


The PHP development team hereby announces that support for PHP 4 will  
continue until the end of this year only. After 2007-12-31 there will  
be no more releases of PHP 4.4. We will continue to make critical  
security fixes available on a case-by-case basis until 2008-08-08.  
Please use the rest of this year to make your application suitable to  
run on PHP 5.
