I always thought you should go by features you need...

    That's a reasonable comment and we did look at features. There's nothing essential; e.g. we don't need support for a particular module, Unicode version, etc. Newer versions do have nice-to-have features — for instance, indented heredocs certainly make code look cleaner — but we can develop without them. Bug fixes, optimisations, and the like, are definitely welcome (but their absence is not a show-stopper).
