    For those upgrading from PHP 5.2.x, be aware that quite a bit has
    changed, and it will very likely not 'drop in', but PHP 5.2.x is not
    supported by any longer, so there wasn't a lot of choice
    in the matter. We're not able to support a security fork of
    PHP 5.2.x here either, so you'll have to just bite the bullet on
    this. You'll be better off in the long run. :)
