Thanks Nicolas, this is reassuring. I think I'll look into installing on
my laptop and start getting familiar with php5 and OO coding (which I
still don't fully 'get' ATM) for a month or two before installing it on
servers that I'm running. It'll give me time to get familiar with the
"little problems". 

Thanks; sol
