I'm referring to the Foo.deps.php files which contain:
// This file exists to ensure that base classes are preloaded before
// <filename> is compiled, working around a bug in the APC opcode
// cache on PHP 5, where cached code can break if the include order
// changed on a subsequent page view.
// see http://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2006-January/021311.html
The referenced bug http://pecl.php.net/bugs/bug.php?id=6503
as fixed in PHP 5.1.x.
Can we remove those file or is there something else going on with this
problem that we should be aware of?
