But why would you start from scratch when a single function can do
all the heavy lifting for you? The preference for a single
character? ( : versus = ). It seems that development time could be
put to better use than writing another file parsing routine.
What are users? Aren't module developers users too? Why not give
them a documented function to work against?
Keep in mind that each file included adds cost. Usually 3-5msec,
sometimes 10 or more per file. This is OS and configuration-
dependent. If we're just talking about the modules page then that's
fine, but files aren't free.
