I'm all for the "Go PHP5!" effort...

However, I'm only in favor where there's a clear case that PHP5 would  
make the code any better.  None of the code I have in mind for this  
functionality has anything to do with PHP4 vs. PHP5 changes.  It's  
all trivial, plain-vanilla php code to glue the info from  
update_status.module together with some wisdom about CVS (with a  
little FAPI sprinkled in) to upgrade your site via CVS.  Trying to  
force this to be a PHP5-only feature would actually be difficult, and  
totally contrived.

Therefore, I'm going to have to graciously decline your request in  
this case.  But, I'll keep it in mind for the future.
