The problem I have with this is that when I do this, the class
just plain doesn't work (shoddy coding). For example, let's look
at MIME-encoding attachments to emails. I downloaded about 3 or 4 
classes and tried to get them to work (using their own example
code). Bzzt. Nothing, nada, syntax errors and logic errors 

In the end I went back to the book which recommended the classes,
and wrote functions to accept an array of filenames to attach to
the email body using the logic in the book.

Apparently everyone I've sent my function to finds it a lot
easier to integrate and use :)

Maybe the quality of existing freely-available PHP OOP-based 
code just ain't there.
