At some time I actually tried building something like exceptions in PHP4,
using a global variable and an exception class. It was meant to be easily
updated to PHP5, then, but the project was canceled early, so I have no
idea if this would've been as useful as I thought. I'll attach the
unfinished source if someone's interested.

Extend this by an "Your editor is opened, all files are loaded, you know
how the source works and just need to change it, also assuming it works
right away thus skipping debugging" and I'll agree *g*

I don't mind OO. I use Java in daily coding anyway. And as long as it's a
library, OO and procedural is both fine with me. For rather small
projects, being just the glue between database and HTML, it's not that
much of a difference anyway.

Thanks for your work, I'll look into it when time permits.
