<b>Fatal error</b>: Directive 'allow_call_time_pass_reference' is no longer 
available in PHP in <b>Unknown</b> on line <b>0</b><br />

<b>Fatal error</b>: Directive 'magic_quotes_gpc' is no longer available in PHP in 
<b>Unknown</b> on line <b>0</b><br />

1) It should return Content-type header before those errors. Without it webserver 
wont display error but instead it will generate 500 error
2) It is stupid to throw fatal error on that. Same php.ini are used with multiple 
php versions commonly. It should be warrning not fatal error. I get that you are 
trying to show programers that magic quotes are finished but still it is bad 
decision on fatal error.

1. Startup errors are generated before headers can be sent. Sorry. Disable 
display_startup_errors if it's a major problem.

2. This really does need to be a fatal error: there are serious security 
implications for developers still relying on magic quotes, and for users with 
display_startup_errors turned off, silently allowing a normal-seeming startup is 
the worst thing we could do.
