> So we've been back and forth on this issue and, at this minute are leaning to 5.3 being a minimum requirement.  But given that wide adoption is a goal I ask Otto, Beau, Michael, Brian, Ryan, John and Brian: "What would *you* chose as a min PHP level required for use if you were releasing a plugin targeting the same market and with the same goals?" (Chason, I assume I already know what you would do. :)

As mentioned previously, if I was actually aiming for adoption I would
personally aim at 5.2. Given your described audience, I would
definitely aim for 5.2, since a lot of them are probably subject to
(ridiculous, external) imposed limitations coming from their clients.
