Well, it's not that easy...well, it is technically easy but it will be a
lot of work. For each page you need to figure out which variables are
registered as globals in the current 1.3.x tree. Then you need to
replace them with the $HTTP_POST_VARS or $HTTP_GET_VARS.
We could, as a group, decide to require which ever version of PHP that
started usin the $_REQUEST object. The good thing about that is then
regardless of a POST or a GET you can use the $_REQUEST['<varname>'].
If we don't want to do that, we *could* simply either ask for the PHP
version in config.php or check it through the code and if they don't
support $_REQUEST, then you could add the the top of lib-common.php
$_REQUEST = array_merge($HTTP_POST_VARS, $HTTP_GET_VARS);
That way the code regardless of PHP version would be the same.
Make sense? Comments, questions, concerns? How much fun would
regression testing this be?
