Well, it won't be better than "try". PHP is too much of a moving target
that one could make any predictions of what might continue to work on PHP6.
Upgrading to a new version of PHP involves:
* making a list of all PHP primitives that we ever used (a daunting task
* checking the documentation of all these primitives to see whether they
changed from PHP4 to PHP5,
* looking up all the places where a changed primitive was used, and
* and checking whether the change actually affects the code.
That's a huge amount of work just to keep software running that's
already in good working order, something that programmers *hate*.
Anyway - I'm going to start work on Ruletable for PHP5 today.
