Huge -1 to that, mainly the PHP version. I'm fine with plugins
disabling sending that, but if we don't send that with the core, then
that's a lot of very important statistics lost (i.e. if we only
support PHP5, what % of users would be affected?).

And what's the harm in sending PHP version anyway? You're REALLY
paranoid if you think that's a security risk and if for some reason it
is, then you have bigger problems (i.e. upgrade your PHP version).
