Yup, that's my new plan.

OnlyTangentiallyRelated: Do you think PHP rots your brain? I was  
playing with that last night as a reward for four days of solid,  
fourteen hour PHP work for a 'friend' and all the crystal clear ideas  
I thought I had seemed to have turned to poop. I'm convinced there's  
a mental health risk there... I'm also finding it increasingly hard  
to consider any language that lacks closures civilised.
