Well, your the expert, so I'll look into this further, but do you have
any statistics, or a guess, as to the load auto_prepending an entire
site would add to a server? 

I've always been under the impression that adding PHP to every page will
add significant load. I'm not familiar enough with session management,
but it seems like your setup would add a heavy load?

Currently, only a small portion of our pages are PHP -- those linking
into databases and covering the front end negotiation.

Again, your the expert, so I'll just have to do some research. Thanks
for the suggestion.
