[pLog-svn] This is not fair

Hi guys,

LifeType really is a great service, however, it's very slow, I like Lifetype
and really I wish the best for it and for you guys.

If you don't mind, I have some suggestions:
1) about __autoload: I think it's a great idea, and it will increase
lifetype performance if you use it in a correct way, something like this:

$importList = array();

//This will not load class directly from classes path, just load it when you
need it
function import($classPath) {
    global $importList;
    $classFullPath = APP_PATH.str_replace('.', '/', $classPath);
    $className = basename($classFullPath);
    $importList[$className] = $classFullPath.'.php';
    if(!file_exists($importList[$className])) {
        throw new Exception('File Doesn\'t Exists

//Catch unloaded classes
function __autoload($className) {
    global $importList;

    if(isset($importList[$className])) {
        include $importList[$className];
    } else {
        throw new Exception("Invalid Class Name [$className]");
    return $className;

and about load a classes just use it like this

and keep your class file name exactly like ClassName.

2) using the cache: smarty cache is great, but I think it's used in a wrong
in each request, you already load [local files]  and plugins and ... , which
will not be used if the template is cached.

3) loading operations[controllers maps]: you can store this array elements
in temp file and run a binary search on this array to get incoming operation
