Guess I'm missing the point here. What I meant was to change stuff like this:
require_once(HOME . "/thirdparty/Smarty/Smarty.class.php");
to something like this:
$include_path = ini_get('include_path');
ini_set('include_path', HOME . '/thirdparty' . SEPARATOR . $include_path);
What is the negative side of such a change?

Where is the difference to C or Java? The recent xpdf discussion
basically touched the same issue, right? Packaging precompiled
binaries into java source packages is a common practice but has been
effictively banned by the java herd. Sometimes necessitates larger
changes in the build scripts for the app but I guess it increases
maintainability in the long run.
Where is the difference for the php libraries?
