David, you might try setting the MINIMUM_PHP_VERSION define in
wikka.php to '4.0'.  But you'll be on your own with this -- we decided
two years ago that we would begin incorporating features from PHP 5
for the 1.3.x release.  There are likely to be some incompatibilities
with PHP 4.

Someone needs to remind free.fr that PHP 4 has been EOL'd since 2007,
with security fixes ending in 2008.
