It certainly would make sense.  However, we did decide to go with PHP 4.
Why? There aren't too many production servers running PHP 5.  Not many
at all.  And the OOP in PHP 4 is, well, crap.  You can implement PHP 4
OOP functionally, for the most part, anyways.

Besides, this did start as a 'training meeting' to begin with.  This, of
course, means that we start at the LCD and work our way up.  And I
personally think that starting procedurally is the way to go for beginners.

It doesn't really matter to me anyways;  I'm just heading up the Python
port, and that's going to be, of course, OOP centric. :)
