Looking at the code (I only checked sql.php and xml.php) I wonder why
the different functions are defined within the 'else' block. This
doesn't seem right to me. There must be cleaner ways of conditionally
defining a function than putting them in an if/else block. I'm not
sure even how the php compiler parses this? Anyway I don't think we
can rely on the behaviour of the php compiler to not define these

Kind regards,
