  precisely the point i was trying to make, but i might avoid the use
of the word "unavailable" since that's still slightly ambiguous.  it
makes it seem like it's still there somehow, you just can't get to it.
i would be more direct, something like "*removed* as of PHP 6."  then
there's no confusion.
