Hi All,

As php4 is not supported upstream, is vulnerable to several security
issues[1] and we have php5 packages (a bit stale currently, but being
worked on), we're going to drop php4 from the catalog on July 1.  This
won't remove it from your systems of course, but it will mean you
can't easily install it on new systems after that date.
