Believe me, I'm not doing it on purpose.  I'm trying to get two different
script packages to play nice with each other and I want to keep the
modifications at a minumum to make it easier to update the software.
Specificaly I'm talking about a weblog package (phpslash) and forums package
(phpbb), as well as a shopping cart (phpshop), initialy... maybe others as

the class name problem isnt that bad, really.  But there's global variables
as well that need to be isolated.  get/post vars, session vars, etc.

My idea is to isolate each script, pass in the global vars that it expects
to see.  The overall, "parent" script would keep the variables for all the
scripts under different names that dont conflict, converting them on entry
to each script.
