Description: ------------ Today I have tried to make a big application "register_globals = off" compatible. So far, the application used global variables and called then session_register("var_name");. Obviously something that won't work with r_g = off. The current get() and set() methods are nice, but not enough IMHO. It would be nice to have new getRef() and setRef() methods that return / get the value by reference. The $default possibility in get() and the unset() possibility in set() wouldn't be needed in these new methods and they could be rather short. This would be a great addition because it makes the transition from old session usage to a safe session usage (with rg=off) very easy. If you need more details or want me to make a patch, please tell me. Thanks.
