It would be interesting to see how many people are still using
PHP3... Found only stats for php alone (for example:
http://www.securityspace.com/s_survey/data/man.200212/apachemods.html ),
nothing comparing php3 and php4.  

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=23067 shows
that there are about 10% people downloading the archive with
php3 file endings, but does it really mean something? I
also usualy get the "php3" version, just to be able to update
easily with a cvs update... 

Should we drop php3 support ? PHP4 is already 2 years old now :)
