*** Consider a mutli-user environment, like an ISP, where many users can 
script on the same server.
In that case, we need a system-wide configuration flag.
However, I agree with you that some cases may require having 
allow_url_fopen On while preventing most of the others from using it.
I think that case is not depending on PHP but rather on a correctly 
implemented httpd server.
