Which means, current and future phpMyAdmin-release will always be targeted
at a PHP3 audience as well?

It's not that I think sessions are neccessary for phpMyAdmin, but at some
point I think new features have to overwhelm the effort to stay
backwards-compatible, also because PHP3 get's deprecated nowadays (simply
because of security issues. I wouldn't want older exploitable php-versions
running on my server).  And even then, PHP3-users surely upgrade their
phpMyAdmin releases as often as they upgrade their PHP3... ;-)

Just a general thought, but I think currently there are other tasks to
fulfill than implementing sessions.
