Hi PHP team,

I was thinking that maybe it could be a good time to revisit this wishlist bug and turn
short_tags Off by default.

We would need to check all revdeps in the archive, prepare lintian check, etc. (and of
course add debian/NEWS about it).  Also we probably should write some paragraph into
release notes with all the stuff which has changed in PHP 5.4.
