Using PHP version 5.2 or 5.3 for commercial products?

seems to me to be the sort of thing that should be discouraged, because it will have no value in a year (when everyone will be using a version of PHP that's cutting edge right now). However, I can't find a basis in the FAQ for this opinion; am I wrong?

  • Perhaps leave it open just long enough for a few people to give the user an answer, then close it?

I'd say that these sort of questions are too localised, and are already covered in the close reasons:

This question is unlikely to ever help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet.

I've bolded the bit that applies in this case.
