Don't consider these anywhere near official answers. Or even correct
answers, for that matter :)

So far as I know, the only code-breaking change in PHP5 is some obscure
OOP methodologies. The PHP/Zend docs say "but no one uses this anyway".
If Horde isn't compatible with PHP5, then its a PHP5 bug. 

I had horde running under one of the PHP5 betas, only me using it, and
only for a couple of days. It worked, but I wasn't trying to find bugs.

My understanding is that Subversion is supposed to replace (and improve
upon) the /features/ of CVS, but direct compatibility isn't at all a
goal. PHP seems not to has any webdav capabilities, so I think the
answer here is "no" and "not likely anywhere in the future, either"

You only need configure the core horde system by hand. As a horde admin

Turba sources, etc seem still to be done by hand, and I don't know if
they are targeted to be XMLized.
