Hi Jo.

Oh, statistics are good. But where do you draw the line? ;)

Enterprise means something outstanding? But at the same time we need to make sure it runs on the average hosting server? Digging into that statistics you pointed to…

… we should be compatible to PHP 5.2, as almost 50% of those running PHP 5 still run PHP 5.2?

… we should add workarounds for things fixed/improved in PHP because of only 22% of those running PHP 5.3?

Basically we don't know a lot abput what people are actually running. And in a project I am currently involved with, we are using traits. Woah, hold it! That's PHP 5.4 in a customer project… Yes! :)

Anyway, I am looking forward tp the day I can drop those workarounds from the Flow codebase (and related projects). :)
