On the other hand, how much would you spend yearly on non-tech hobbies?

Zeev’s proposal is unrealistic and would de permanent damage to PHP’s reputation. Nikita’s proposal about namespaced opt-in features is the way to go

I keep wanting to mock final classes in PHP and it feels like a semantics problem in my style. I often have services for which there's only one valid implementation in my domain (I don't count the mock as a valid alt implementation). (1/4)

I think we need a proper survey about how userland developers actually want to use PHP in the future regarding BC. Right now, internals can only guess about what way the language should evolve, based on almost no actual data. What's your opinion?

It looks like short open tags will stay in PHP:

Personally I'm not sold on these points, but I do appreciate the time and effort you put into PHP. I'm very curious to what the vote will result in. I think they should be removed, but if the majority decides against it, I'm fine with that also.

> we're making it more difficult for users to stay current, for no gain Are there actual numbers on how many users will be stuck on older versions? From my userland experience, deprecations like this wouldn't stop me from upgrading, a fix can be automated

> in practice, they are disabled by default via configuration in virtually all mainstream PHP distributions Doesn't this mean that deprecating short tags would only affect a marginally small amount of people?

> Virtually all PHP-based projects that are meant for redistribution have rules that prohibit the use of short tags Are there any numbers on this?
