But my scripts aren't broken! It's PHP 6 that is broken.

How many hosting companies write to all their account holders to ask 
permission before upgrading PHP, not just from 4 to 5, but all the releases 
in between? Very few of them, if any, in my experience.

Some hosting companies won't allow you to use htaccess files, refuse to 
install any optional extension, let alone one from the PECL or PEAR 
repositories. Some of them won't give you more than one MySQL database. 
Different companies provide different levels of service. The only thing that 
the DO have in common is that they charge you for it.
