Say PHP had a function to put it in "portable mode" changing the
behaviour of a few functions.  Then for example PEAR classes would
have to deal with running both with and without this mode, since the
user can enable or disable it at will.  So this would in fact add
complexity to the process of writing portable PHP code.

I think André is right that it's better to educate users (for example
by telling them to disable magic_quotes :-).
