Going through some literature, it seems like the use of registered 
globals can cause security issues. Now, the dilemma, all my previous PHP 
installations ( for the last year or so ) have come with register 
globals = on in the php.ini file by default, and users on my system has 
happily coded their websites using this function.
Now , with  all the new versions of PHP, the registered globals are 
turned off in the ini and will basically cause all those previous sites 
not to function. Which means that I'm between a rock and a hard place, 
turn the register globals back on and carry on with the security risks, 
or keep it off and have all those people re-code their sites...
Is there a more "gentle" solution out there? Am I just misunderstanding 
the issue?
Any light on the matter will be appreciated.
