unfortunately, this doesnt seem to work. Rather, it works, but it doesnt seem to work any differently than an include() (although you can't use output buffering on it, so in that regard its different). It seems to pass in all the variables and classes.
My other option, which I have been avoiding, is to rename the classes... not all that hard really; and then for variables either rename them all, or do this: backupallglobalvariablesandunsetthem(); setvariablesthatscriptisexpectingtosee(); include("script"); unsetallvariablesnotinbackup(); restorebackupvariables(); and then repeat this for each script I'm trying to embed... basicaly wrap each script/application in a clean "sterilized" php envirionment. I dont know how much overhead this would add. But it seems like the only solution at this point. It just occured to me that this might actualy make things more secure in a way since the parent script will totaly control what variables get passed in..
