HEAD == PHP 7 (Was: Re: PHP6, Unicode for language functions,
Call that version PHP 7.
Easy, we'll branch from current PHP_5_1 to PHP_6.
And release PHP 6 as the cleaned up one.
Like you said, the unicode PHP version is not gonna be released for a quite
some time. But I'd really want to see some improvements and cleanups done
before that and not wait another 2 years for that.
The other option is to fork PHP of course. Or maintain my own version
of it, but both of those are not gonna be good for PHP in the long run.
(If I'm forced to maintain my own PHP version, I won't have the energy
to continue working with the "real" PHP..forking is another story)
