I've also heard that all PHP6 is going to be is just really Unicode. Forget where I read that... think it was on a blog or something. See if I can't dig up the article.
I have to disagree with making PHP a strictly typed language. Yes, it's very very weakly typed... but that's one of the things that makes it so easy for newbies to comprehend. You can still use type casting... you can still enforce the number of arguments passed to a variable through interfaces.
And again, one of the more attractive features of PHP is that it has so many premade functions for you, that make it quick and easy to learn and do something with PHP.
So I don't think they should take away from PHP, especially in a way that could drastically deform the language.
SO, yeah, adding features like namespaces, that would be cool, but I don't feel it should have to be enforced. It's a scripting language. It should stay scripty.
