My point is that nobody could use this feature so far, so if we remove it 
_now_ nobody will even notice it!

Generally I think it's a bad idea to provide workarounds for security features 
in PHP. Other than that I know only one server who uses open_basedir while 
safe_mode is disabled...

Perfect. So I will make that change tomorrow.
