PHP is such a load of crap, right down to the standard library, that it
creates a culture where it's acceptable to write horrible code. [...]
Maybe with PHP 5 they are trying to clean up the neighborhood, but that
doesn't change the fact when you program in PHP you are programming in
a dump. -- Ian Bicking, July 2005
