stick till Christmas with 5.2, then would jump right to 5.4 branch.
Please note that the discussion is about the _minimum_ version of PHP needed to run SMW. If you can use 5.4 to run it, then that should work just fine.
Personally I think it's still to early to require 5.4, as very few people are actually running this already. Maybe in a year or so. I agree that I'd be nice if we could use the new features in 5.4, but I've not seen any developer come with a feature that would require it or would be greatly facilitated by it.
