Not always, unfortunately. PHP has implemented some show-stoppers which
have required extensive editing of some of our customer scripts here.
The deprecation of long array names ($HTTP_*_VARS) is an example. Yes,
I can edit the php.ini file to make deprecated forms work, but the
default behavior isn't always backward-compatible. 

I hacked PHP support into Mailman some years ago for use in archive
searches but fortunately my code was pretty simple.
