I didn't suggest duplicating anything, just separating the elements so there's a clear distinction between static and instantiated. This is basic software engineering if you ask me. I was going to rant about defensive programming here, but life's too short!

Those people who kept telling me 'just fix the errors' simply don't understand how complex that CAN be :( I've only worked my way through half a dozen packages and I've 20 or so to go ... all just to bring things 'up to acceptable php code' ;)

It is as simple as that. Fix the errors. There may be a lot of them, and there may be complex interplay between different parts of your code, but it's still as simple as just fixing the errors.
