yadda, yadda.. it's another case for potential bogus bug reports arising from the misuse of it. And you're not always in control what is used and where.

Bogus bug reports existed and will exist forever. However, this would not be a case for it - nobody would stumble on it by chance or by mistake, it's not more probable than writing unlink(__FILE__) by chance in your code.

Now you force people to put something like "ini_set('short_open_tag', 0);" in each script to be sure it's not being enabled when before this

I force? Since when? I do not force anybody to do anything. If you think it's what this patch does, you completely misunderstand it. I have very hard time to understand how did you arrive to a conclusion that it changes something in a way that requires writing "ini_set('short_open_tag', 0);" in every script.

change you could rely on checking that it's off in php.ini and break early if it's on when your app relies on it being off.

If you run third-party unchecked code together with your code and your code depends on that third-party code not doing anything unexpected - you in so much bigger trouble than short tags.

Try check the bug reports once in a while. People do all kinds of stupid

Believe it or not, I do.
