We've had this discussion so many times, the answer is clear,
WordPress won't drop support for PHP4 in the short term. Why? Because
that will be an improvement aimed just to developers, and WordPress is
about users first.

And no, it won't be an "strong message" neither will they switch to
PHP5 just because it is a WordPress requirement.
