Hardened PHP Project

The Hardened PHP Project looks quite interesting and makes a lot of sense. With the Linux kernel there are modules to protect against the most common loadable kernel module vulnerabilities so why not for PHP? The most common PHP coding problems are known to developers but still can slip through for various reasons.

Some nay-sayers could point to this project to say that PHP is inherently insecure but I see it as a sign that PHP is maturing and coming into it’s own. Especially in the corporate technology world which is usually the last to adopt any worthy technology. How many companies will see Hardened PHP as the breaking point that makes adoption appropriate for their needs?
