    My current "oh my GOD" reaction to PHP is the great inconsistency in the function names.

    You're not kidding. It's great that we can remember that Perl builtins never have underscores. With PHP, the use of underscores is totally random (sort of like used to be). is_array(), is_numeric(), etc., have underscores, but isset() doesn't. strlen(), strtr(), and a bunch of other str* function have no underscore, but str_pad(), str_repeat(), and str_replace() do. And you've got stuff like frenchtojd() taking up the namespace -- for handling the French revolutionary calendar (which of course comes up all the time in my Web work).
