The reasoning goes something like this:
1. Use functions.
2. Are there several pieces of data that needs to be constantly passed
around between those functions? Use a class.
And what about static class variables rather than global variables? WP

I don't think new globals were introduced since we dropped PHP4, but I
haven't see static class variables used yet either.
