I'd like to see a lot of internal functions made extendable. Anything
that would reduce the necessity for patches would be great.
If I can go way out there, how about a function database table.
gl_function (function_id, override_name, override_owner)?
There'd be a global array: $_FUNCTIONS = array($function_id =>
$override_name, ....) which would be loaded in lib-common.php. Then
all the overridable functions would start:
if (array_key_exists($_FUNCTIONS['whatever']) &&
return call_user_func_array($_FUNCTIONS['whatever'], func_get_args());
// rest of function
In theory the only overhead is the call to array_key_exists() when
the function has not be overridden. This would be a lot simpler than
the CUSTOM_ stuff all over the code.

No. Add the template caching library which is working, debugged and
has no real downsides before **__STARTING__** an overhaul of
COM_siteHeader/Footer. Geez, I just notice the title was
lib-layout.php. Heck, why not call it layout.class.php and do it right?
