PHP 5 is slated to have namespaces included. There's no test version yet to determine how well this will work, but that should fix one of his two complaints. The other is more of just familiarizing himself with the language. I doubt this can be fixed.

    What do you mean "There's no test version yet"? Go to and download a copy. I've been playing with it for a couple months already. PHP5 has an answer to almost every major complaint I've heard about PHP.

    I'm curious -- what's the reasoning for dir() returning a new directory object and why is it not new dir?

      dir() is a function.
