Can you explain a bit more about what you're trying to do? If you're  
trying to allow people to e-mail in stories, for example, WordPress  
has that feature built in.

PHP5 isn't a big deal, but if you're asking people to install  
components it can deter a lot of users. If possible, use libraries —  
I'm developing a plugin right now that requires some pretty hefty  
libraries (including a Zend extension), but I got around having people  
install them by using include_path.
