Clearly, Globals are evil.
It's a bitch to have to work with code you can't change unless you
are willing to edit over 1500 files.
Just keep in mind that register_globals is deprecated and will be going
away in a future release of PHP. You might want to start thinking about
a strategy to update those files before that happens.
