>> For "or" statements it does, but not && or xor.

Are you sure only "or" which do lazy evaluation?
as far as i remember, the last time I use "&&" operator it do
lazy evaluation.
And if you look at the online manual, some users also confirmed
that PHP implement lazy evaluation for logical operator.

Would you share the reason with us why you dont want lazy
evaluation in "AND"?

i believe PHP implement lazy evaluation, so it won't evaluate $b=='b'
