    This thread is pointing out that PHP was not designed as an OO language, and isn't evolving either. At least not as quickly as Marcus would like

    In PHP 5, object comparison is more complicated than in PHP 4 and more in accordance to what one will expect from an Object Oriented Language (not that PHP 5 is such a language).
    I think that is quite telling for people looking for OO features in PHP

    Well, that's the problem with evolution; you get left with deprecated funtionality and deeply ingrained design flaws. PHP is full of things that seemed tacked on without too much thought; from its incomplete OO features to inconsitantly named functions. But in spite of its flaws, evolution has its strong points, which is evident in the fact that PHP has managed to find its niche and thrive. It has managed to get where it has with pretty limited OO functionality, so it shouldn't be too surprising that improving it isn't neccesarily high on the developers' list of priorities.
