an object oriented API for every component of PHPBB would be ideal, because you could enhance or override any pre-existing methods without changing any pre-existing code. Unfortunately, to have a really clean and consisten OO API in PHP, you need to go exclusively to PHP 5.

That`s no Problem ;) The most webhosting organisations do have php5. In my own situation, i get a update to php5 for 5€. And most Freehosters like pytal.de just have php5.

It is a problem because most do actually still only have PHP4, mainly so popular scripts like phpBB still work on clients accounts.

Here's what I think about a hook system. I personally wouldn't use it because I like to go and do the code edits manually (that's why I don't use EM). It would be a nice feature for people that are new to webdesign, and don't know anything about PHP. So when phpBB 3.0 comes out, someone might want to consider making a MOD for it that's easy to install (as little file edits as possible) so that people that don't know what they're really doing can customize their boards with a smoother transition.

Perhaps this is something that the EM crew should look into.
