[wp-hackers] looking for opinions on php5-only plugins

I don't bother trying to support anything below PHP 5 anymore.

I have example code in the Automatic Timezone plugin (
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/automatic-timezone/ ) which
demonstrates how to prevent a plugin from being activated.

Using this method, you could make your plugin check for the necessary
support (like PHP 5, or whatever), and pop a message back to the user
when they try to activate it on a PHP 4 setup.
