It doesn't really explain it *well*. It overcomplicates things. IMHO,
selfhtml should stick to HTML and avoid explaining PHP. ;-(

We are already using __autoload()?

Besides, I don't think in an app like roundcube we don't gain that
much from using autoload. You're best of configuring APC's stat cache
etc. correctly to get an improvement.
