Good you made it here. We've had our own personal discussion about
PHP5 if you check the list archives (http://lists.roundcube.net) a
while ago and personally I've followed the discussion on the
mailinglists of SM, PEAR and Smarty - so IMHO this really is the way
to go.

When Thomas gets to his email, I am sure he will comment also on if
we'll commit to your deadline as well. For right now we decided to
make the "devel-vnext" branch PHP5 only and I am in the middle of
porting everything. But (of course) we have no date when it's due.
