Just committed Crell's and dww's patch to add support to Drupal 6 for
modules and even themes to specify the minimum PHP version requirements.
This allows developers to publish PHP 5 only modules and themes (think
XML output for Flex or OpenLaszlo apps in the area of themes, or crazy
image manipulation). Anyway, being in the .info files, this will also
allow project module to automatically present a compatibility chart for
modules and themes.
By default, all modules and themes are supposed to be compatible with
the present-time minimum PHP requirements of Drupal, if not specified
Thanks again to Crell and dww for the quick reaction to the ideas
popping up! I hope this helps energize the PHP 5 pushing efforts for
Drupal 6 contributed functionality.
