 With #2996, we created a first iteration of the "Upgrading PHP"
 information page and got it up on wordpress.org. This version is in a good
 state regarding content, however it never received proper design - the
 content was simply put on a page.

 We'd like to have an improved design for this page, and also allow the
 page to have a dynamic header, depending on a `php_version` GET parameter
 that can be passed in the URL. If that parameter is passed and contains a
 PHP version that is considered outdated, a warning message can be shown
 and simulate better context, for example when WordPress core links to the
 page because of an outdated version detected. If no such parameter is
 passed, nothing will be shown, like it is at the moment.

 There's an initial mockup for a design that @jaymanpandya created a while
 ago, which I'll upload as attachment to this ticket.

 Here's the next steps we envision for this:

 1. Get feedback on the mockup from the design team, with emphasis on how
 this could be integrated with the general make.wordpress.org design.
 2. Get feedback from the meta team in terms of how freely we can work on
 the design, as it should probably still be coherent with the general
 design of make.wordpress.org support pages.
 3. Implement the dynamic page header using a `php_version` GET parameter
 as a simple shortcode, or alternatively Gutenberg block.
 4. Implement the design agreed on for both the static page content and the
 dynamic header.
