Sounds extremely bad and scary idea! When the hell was this decided?
Just imagine how error prone your scripts get..especially if any XML
shit is involved..
Why you'd do that if XML shit is involved? That's like saying unlink()
is very scary idea because you can delete useful files with it. Of
course you can misuse it if you so inclined, what can't be misused?
There are, however, very clear use cases when it can be useful, and
these use cases are very easily controlled and it doesn't add any
complexity or any trouble to any of the existing code (unless your code
has a habit of randomly setting arbitrary ini settings to arbitrary
values). So I don't see why after ignoring my request for discussion for
2 weeks people wake up and act so scared. There's nothing scary here. In
fact, there's even nothing new here, just one more use case for
functionality that existed in PHP for ages.
