[Sysadmins] Dependency circle of death

I'm looking for "best practice" advice when in this situation:
- Using Youtube API via GData
- GData uses Zend Framework which requires PHP >= 5.2.4
- You are hosting on RHEL platform which has only PHP 5.1.6 maintained.

Obviously the project has no significant sysadmin budget to have a team
maintaining packages other than "yum update". There are some cowboys
repositories for this like jason and remi, but they don't really have
the same seal of trust like dag/rpmforge.
