It may not be "that bad" an upgrade. Of course, as with any new major
version release problems will probably be found. From a comment posted
on Slashdot, apparently from a PHP developer...

"One of our design goals for PHP 5, was to keep backwards compatibility
as much as possible. Actually most PHP 4 sites run out of the box with
PHP 5. If there are problems, there's a compatibility mode (configurable
via php.ini) which makes the object-oriented model behave the same as in
PHP 4. Bottom-line: Very few people will have problems doing the
upgrade. Of course you should thoroughly test your site before
