Concluding,  and one idea...I think I received satisfying advices on everything 
but first question (Detection of typos and other simple mistakes). And we were 
talking also about being able to catch them at compile time, then if php at all 
has compile time etc. Today one thing crossed my mind -- if there is compiler 
for php maybe it can catch these errors natively, like java compiler for java? 
Unfortunatelly there is no recent version available for windows so I can't test 
it myself ( I am 
interesting if someone is using it, and if it can detect this simple mistakes 
(I am using eclipse + php plugin, but I feel there is something wrong in 
depending on editor to detect programming errors :-) )
