I think the whole idea here is to break that catch-22 situation.<br>If the largest PHP application say they will move off PHP4, then<br>the users/hosts/distros will each pressure/nudge the other entities<br>to move faster, rather than the chicken-egg we are in today.
<br><br>So, +1 on this initiative. What is the worst case? Come February<br>and we see that things have not moved. We evaluate it them and see<br>what other projects did, and decide either to stay the course, or go<br>back to PHP4.
<br><br>So, the risk is not high in such a move.<br><br>Unless we (all CMS's that is) try, we will never know if it can succeed.<br>-- <br><a href="http://2bits.com">2bits.com</a><br><a href="http://2bits.com">http://2bits.com
