I'm wondering if we still need to support PHP 5.3.


I'd rather bump the minimum version up to PHP 5.5, and know people have been talking about doing the same for MediaWiki itself. My question is if this can already be done without making Wikibase undeployable on WMF servers. Is everything running HHVM yet, or is there some stuff relevant to Wikibase that still runs an unsupported version of PHP?

aude@terbium:~$ php -v
PHP 5.3.10-1ubuntu3.15+wmf1 with Suhosin-Patch (cli) (built: Oct 30 2014 14:38:04) 
Copyright (c) 1997-2012 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v2.3.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2012 Zend Technologies

this is where we run our change dispatcher and other stuff, and there are some other places still with 5.3.
