As for the repo: I thinkn 'php' should point to the most recent

the new one in the 'right place' allows for the users to stay on one

Definitely, but IMHO this depends a little bit on if we want to ship
php 5.4 in factory or if it should only stay in, say,
devel:language:php54 testing repo for now.

The decision should be rather simple:
Factory currently targets openSUSE 12.2 + 1 (12.2 was split off, so
Factory targets the next version to come).
Timeframe: realistically not under 8 months :)

So what would be the status of PHP 5.4 by then? Acceptable for wide
audience? If so: by all means! Go for it in Factory.

What will the status regarding maintenance of 5.3 be by that time? Any
risk of being dropped in short term? If so: by all means: don't have
5.3 in Factory for the next release...

To get some better feeling about the update, it might be worthy to get
some overview what all breaks. There is surely a lot of packages that
are expected to be working (horde/imp, phpmyadmin, [...])

Wordpress, mediawiki, roundcube - there is plenty.

The list of backward incompatible changes is interesting, although I
don't know which of these are actually likely to cause problems :-(
