Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

Since [19760].

wp_load_translations_early() includes functions.php, which in turn includes option.php. This leads to the parse error when running PHP 4 (due to the clone keyword being used there):

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in wp-includes/option.php on line 225


In 3.3, a proper error message was shown:

Your server is running PHP version 4.4.7 but WordPress 3.3.3 requires at least 5.2.4.

21316.patch is an attempt to fix this by conditionally including option.php.
