 Hi,
 
 yet another patch from Ole in a bid to rid the php eclasses from some
 long forgotten code. The patches should be self-explanatory - just rip
 out everything related to dev-php4 :)
 
 Comments welcome.
 

The standing policy is still not to remove any public functionality from
eclasses. If we decide to start removing functionality the council
should set common rules for it.

Just adding a note on this one- the original technical reason for 
this policy (portage inability to run from just the saved env dump) 
is no longer an issue.

If people want to allow eclasses to have fluid APIs (specifically 
removal of functionality), that's a discussion that needs to start on 
the dev level.

Anyone got strong opinions on this one?
