Guilty as charged :) I tried out 3.0, decided I didn't like certain
features I found annoying, and now I want to get the features (well
only one feature right now) I like into 2.x so I can go back...I have
some energy to do this, and I'm willing to learn, and I asked this
list because I hoped someone would take pity on me and lend some help.
What is my sentence, exile to outer PHP-iberia?

At any rate, I am still interested if anyone has a working patch for
this against the trunk, or any pointers for adapting 53170, words of
experience when changing the grammar, additions to PEP 306, etc... any
help would be greatly appreciated!
