5.3 is archaic (released 30 Jun 2009)
5.6 is coming (5.6 RC1 has just been released)
It makes sense to support previous version, maybe even previous to 
previous, but 3 versions back? Especially that the difference between 
5.3 and 5.4 is huge.

Supporting PHP 5.3 is like supporting IE 6/7 while building modern 
website. Although graceful degradation seems to be much more feasible on 
the front-end side (if you don't have that box-shadow, it's ok - if your 
trait disappears, it's a different sort of story).

For this reason (and because of my TYPO3.Media refactoring which needs traits as well) I propose to raise the system requirements for Neos 1.2 to PHP 5.4. PHP 5.3 is not supported anymore anyway and it's 10 years old after all ...
