Oh, come on. It was just a snark.

RedHat in particular is notorious for patching their RPMs without
bumping major version numbers. That's how they provide their "stable API
platform". As a result your PHP may report it's at version X, but the
actual bugfixes and security features are from version Z.a.svn13378337.
Go figure out which fine manual you need to read to figure out what
incompatible improvements you couldn't live without all these years your
PHP installation has today.
