If you are to ask my opinion, it's really not difficult to make things 
PHP4 and PHP5 compatible. I do it each day, and it only requires a 
little bit of thought while coding to prevent issues. I simply posted 
what I did in case others wanted to provide a good failover mechanism in 
case they must be PHP5 only.
