Alright, thanks for the response. I'll stick to 4.3 features then.

Are there any plans for changing that? PHP 5 not only contains things useful
for developers, but a few things that can drastically help with
optimization, most notably the __autoload() function, which can be used to
load only classes which are necessary when they are needed, as opposed to
loading all of them, even if 99% of them are never used during the execution
of the page.

Furthermore and perhaps more importantly, PHP 4.x development has been
discontinued altogether. Personally, I find this to be enough of a reason to
seriously contemplate going for PHP 5.

I don't like to nag, these are just points for consideration. I do
understand the points for sticking to PHP 4.x as per the reference you gave.
