Raphael I understand your point and it's nothing wrong with that
but please note that this is official code not a third party patch.
It is part of PHP 5.3.0 code and a useful feature for some admins.

I'm personally not keen on this kind of "features" and they tend to
introduce more bugs and information leaks. As such, I won't be working
on it and I hope anyone who may want to work on it to fully understand
the consequences be willing to give full support.
