Original article posted to PHP Advent 2008. Happy Christmas!
Take a simple PHP trick and follow it on a huge tangent to the philosophy of good web architecture.
It’s an honor to be asked to share my ideas with the PHP community. When Chris and Sean asked me to write an entry for the Advent Calendar, I had to accept. Like last year, this article will be quite long. If you need something short and sweet like the other advent entries, you can just read the first section. But if you read it all, there might be a worthwhile concept buried in this logorrhea.
