I think that this is a clear example of "the enemy of good is the even 
better" (I'm not sure how well this translates to English :).  We need to 
keep this function simple, and that way, it clearly isn't.  If you want 
three different scopes, use 3 calls.  If you want register_globals-like 
behavior only prefixed, use import_globals("GPC", "form_").  KISS should be 
our guiding light here.
