Just my $0.02 worth but it doesn't sound like the host updates squat.  
If they don't have the latest version of PHP they're not going to be 
keeping anything up to date therefore alleviating any potential security 
risks.

And, if there answer for updating PHP is "we can move you to Windows" I 
would be going right back to them and telling them to be a host and take 
care of the customer's needs.  My needs being catch up with the versions 
of tools that I need and don't try to move me to another platform that I 
just left.
