The thinking here is that it would be good to get uF parsing into useful
application modules in PHP projects like Wordpress and Drupal. Those
projects put a lot of effort into being able to run on lowest common

PHP5 to encourage end administrators to demand PHP5 from their hosting
providers. So maybe it's all moot.
