Yes, I am not aware of any problems with the current minimum PHP 
requirement (4.1.0?) other than search.module.

By the way I did some more testing, and it seems that the pre-4.3.3 
UTF-8 support was more broken than I thought: the only option is in fact 
a byte-based regular expression, as even using ISO-8859-1 characters is 
problematic with anything other than simple character matches. So it 
would be a solution where not only it is broken on anything 
non-western-european, but it would be very difficult to make this patch 
in the first place.
