I am not a PHP guy at all, but AFAIUI (only from the package
resolution issues in Debian) the PHP4 and PHP5 is incompatible and
that a port require substantial work.

If so, that is a good thing and give some hope that it can be revived.
The main issue about community is still a troublesome one, and IMHO a
lot of blogosphere and article activities would be needed to get some
attention to the project and hopefully some fresh souls.

I support the idea of get going again, and can volunteer a Mentor role
(thanks to Etch and Pivot being excellent podlings and require little
time now). I can also assist in patch application, but can't review
the code per se...
