I think you miss the point. PHP makes it /easy/ to make this mistake. Even people
"with a clue" have to make damned sure they're not relying on having the feature
turned off. Are you arguing this is a good thing in terms of security ?
Polluting the namespace is a really bad idea. It is not an issue of lazy programming.
 such an attitude does nothing to foster useful discussion, btw
