Currently there is a lot of lets reinvent the wheel in php programs when it comes to user management.

Lots and lots of php programs have there own unique way of solving user access rights.  This can be horrid things like suffixing files and so on.

There needs to be a formal framework for user and group access control added to php.  This could allow directory control on sections of scripts and possibly other access controls in time.  Web applications will always need different users to what exist in the rest of the system.  This in time could be used to solve single login on sites using multi php projects.

This also assist php new web server to move from just a developers test tool to something that can be used production.  Key requirement for production for secuirty is directory restriction.  Key feature that need to exist for user management is also directory restriction.  So only the correct users can access the files they should be.

This feature needs discussion for which this bug tracker is not
suitable.  If you're still interested in seeing this added to PHP,
please forward your request to the internals mailing list[1].  For
the time being, I'm suspending this ticket.
