What part don't they agree with?

While i admit i was somewhat disheartened when 5.0.1 came out and i had to 
go redo all my php5-* stuff, it was a small price to pay for the ability 
to start small and only add extensions as dependancies on an as-needed 
basis without having to recompile the whole damn thing.

We've had this ability with Perl for years... and the same need to 
reinstall p5-* on main interpreter upgrade ;-)

If you ever need help, i'd be willing to try lending a hand, though i 
admit my time is somewhat fragmented.
