(sorry for the late answer)

Unfortunately it won't be possible to anticipate the new syntax because
PHP6 won't come only with a new API but also new cast types which if  
now with PHP5 would cause parsing errors.

The t3lib_* stuff is really a monster and as far as I know some people
have problems with it too (running FLOW3 that is) if they don't have  

So theoretically this really needs a cleanup, on the other hand it would
be such a waste of energy because we'd dump the whole thing as soon as
PHP6 is there (whenever that will be).
