Greg, Your attitude stinks.
PHP is a FREE scripting language. Think about the amount of money you are probably charging hosting clients, or charging in web or programming services, or making in site revenue, or whatever way you 'commercially function' through PHP. The register globals 'imposition' IS more secure and encourages better coding practices... would you prefer they made the change now, or in 5 years when you have 100's more sites to fix. Better late than later. If you want something that will never have a bug, never have a security hole, performs perfectly from day 1, never has an upgrade/change, and will never change for the better, you are utterly dreaming! The difference in this case is that the PHP Group aren't emptying your wallet. Sorry to hear that you'll have to do some more upgrading, but I'd keep the complaining to yourself -- "you get what you pay for" springs to mind, but in the case of PHP, we get a whole lot more.
