[TYPO3-core] PHP version requirement

5.3.7 was chosen for a technical reason. If Debian ships an older
version with backports imho that's not something we can officially
support (Does not work on original 5.3.3 but since certain
Debian-patchlevel XYZ). Other distributions at least upgrade inside the
5.3.x-train :-(

Of the four mentioned distributions at least RHEL and CentOS are "equal"
by design.

I agree that the "plan" to have it run on the most commonly used
hosting-plattforms is okay. But when it comes to giving certain
version-numbers somewhere, I'd suggest to stick to the original
If Debian feels like backporting each and everything (and by that maybe
also breaking something?), fine but not really our business.
