Well, I don't think so but of course that depends on how the server is 
configured by default. Memory (RAM) might become an issue etc., but 
other than that we just want PHP and MySQL.

Today PHP5 is about 2 years old so I think there is really no argument 
for not using PHP5 and still develop for PHP4. I assume that the same 
will be true in two years from now for PHP5 and PHP6.

We have the same people in mind who are using TYPO3 currently so I don't 
think we exclude someone by these requirements.
