extract($_GLOBALS);

this will put all the global variables into the current namespace for the function you are in.  It is also not a very efficient way to go, since it will create a copy of the entire $_GLOBALS array every time the function is called.

nice to see you happy, but I don't think it will save your script a lot of time.

The following will probably be more efficient, since it uses references instead.

foreach(array_keys($GLOBALS) as $k){
  $$k =& $GLOBALS[$k];
}

having that said I haven't tested it.
