I recommend that you create a document at
http://www.php.net/license/3_00.txt which explains that no one should
create new works under that license and point to
https://opensource.org/licenses/PHP-3.0 as the text of the 3.00 license.
That gives people the essential information, which is that nobody should
use it, but if they do, it's still open source.
