The best argument I've seen for interfaces is to abstract calling classes to 
avoid binding to a particular framework. Phpmaster was where I saw that.

The idea was that by implementing an interface, the swapping out a framework 
was much simpler since the only code that needed to be written was more the 
interface adapter to the new framework
