This is coming from bad code design and should be fixed with 3.8.

Personally, I see PHP5 not as an progress in PHP but more like a fork.

as long as you use mysql - no.

What about taking the Typo3.orgs categories in account on the TER as well?
I think there is enough categories and they make sense.
But to be honest:
I never use the extMgm without explicitly looking for a certain extension.
I always use typo3.org, then copy the ext key and i'm done.
I even look at the code on typo3.org and then decide to use it or not.
