I'm working on bridges between phpBB & Wordpress, and to integrate it properly I, normally, include the common.php file.
To do so, I'm in the obligation to overwrite the phpbb_path to an absolute path. The container name is based on the phpbb_path, and based on a Windows system, it contains a ":" which isn't parsed and create an error when included (invalid path actually).
I can get through relative path to still support Windows( or break Windows support ), but it breaks the facilitation of configuration for the users.
Am i doing it wrong, or can i send a PR to either fix the name parsing of container.php, or a PR to add namespace to those files (inb4 lot of modifications) ?
Edit : "why do i override the path" : phpbb & wp share the same name for functions and doesn't have namespaces to differenciate, creating conflicts (functions_content.php for make_clickable and functions_users.php for validate_username). So i automatically create a copy with an enclosure "function_exists" so I cache to then include "safely".
