Interesting. I never knew that was a concern. To learn more I googled and found some interesting discussion on the topic, specifically http://stackoverflow.com/questions/186338/why-is-requireonce-so-bad-to-use
Evidently in more recent versions of PHP 5 (not exactly sure which subversion) the difference in performance is trivial. But it's still useful to know, thanks.
