The PHP4->PHP5 was so overdue. PHP4 was so chock full of security issues
that 5 was just begging to be done. The upgrade to 5 was painful for
many things that relied on using the old, busted, backdoor hack
workarounds that the loss of a PHP4-only app was worthwhile!

I'm waiting to see how fast Google manages a rewrite as much of their
codework is in Python.
