Why can I not use if in PHP 5.2

This plugin is build using modern PHP features, such as namespaces, which are not available in PHP 5.2. Trying to run it in this version will cause fatal errors.

Also PHP 5.2 is rather old, slower and may have security issues. Consider updating to a more recent PHP version.
