If we go down that route it's ok.  I was talking about the 
import_globals("P") example, which in my opinion should not work, and 
import_globals("P", "*") which should work, but generate an E_NOTICE.

It looked odd to me as well, but after thinking about it for a while, it 
looks by far the most right thing to do:
- There are no technical drawbacks whatsoever
- It'll make much more noise than a 4.0.x, and make many more people 
realize the difference and do something about it, rather than just upgrade 
and do nothing.
- We finally make use of a x.1 version :)

I think that other than the psychological issue that we're not used to 
bumping the miniversion digit for almost anything, there's no reason not do 
it.  If we end up having a semi-major version before 5.0 (which I doubt, 
considering the way things are going now), we can always release 4.2.
