I do not think that the current php users would drop the language. Maybe it
would prevent certain users to start working with it.

I'm sure that some good faqs on security issues would prevent a lot of harm.
Not only with issues on uninitialized vars (which I tend to forget too) but
problems like default passwords in a new installed application, using 
extentions for libs that could are handled as plain text, etc...

I think that settings like 'allow_url_fopen' is causing much more issues
then people can imagine. A short visit to Google will bring you to a lot
of sites that are exploitable.
