Private methods and variables are necessary for any serious language
that supports class libraries, IMHO.  There are currently some manual
methods (i.e. naming conventions) of accomplishing this, but for the
best results it should be enforced by the compiler/interpreter.

Some might also say that strong typing (or at least more formal typing)
is a requirement, but I'm quite happy without all the related hoops that
C++/Java makes you jump through...that alone is enough to give the
average PHP developer a big boost in productivity vs. those languages.
