I just tried looking at this as I too was concerned with having to set
register_globals on.

Problem is right now we have to use PHP as a CGI because of MapServer, which
means we can't use .htaccess controls :(

Otherwise, you would do something like:

php_flag register_globals on

in your .htaccess ...

Vinko, I believe Daniel covered the extensions we use.  For 
register_globals, this may end up being a fairly extensive change to the 
code to remove this dependency.  It is planned but not for the near 
future (several months at least), although I think we will try to fix 
them as we come across them.  If you wish, the php reference manual 
indicates that the register_globals setting can be set in the .htaccess 
file (  I personally have never tried this 
and don't know the syntax, but it should allow you to specify 
register_globals as off in the php.ini file and override it in the 
maplab directory's .htaccess file.  If you do try this and figure out 
how to make it work, could you post the solution for others please?
