I used to like bunching stuff into one line like
implode(',',array_reverse(explode('.',$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']))); ... but apparently newer versions of PHP don't like that.
That's when you add a method to your utility library. Then you break it out and assign the result to arrays and scalars.
In that case, compliance makes for code that is much easier to read, maintain, and expand.
I really don't see what the drawback is ...
