comment How to write “good” unit tests?
... and if that changed, tests on things that consume said library ... tl;dr; I don't need to test the innards of third-party code. Answer updated for clarity, though.

comment Storing and retrieving simple data within a framework
Before answering, I'd like to know if you're really this concerned with just a few things you'd need to store for sanity checking at boostrap, or if perhaps you're working on something where it's quite a bit more than a few things? If you're just looking at PHP runtime and refusing to run if things aren't what you need, then you're probably micro-optimizing. If you're needing to make a lot of choices based on these values, that's another. You've given version as an example, is that really all there is to this? That matters for an answer.

comment Why aren't “fat binaries” more widely used for cross-platform applications?
@RobertHarvey It doesn't. Free software that is an absolute mess to port it still an absolute mess to port - you just increase the surface in which you might catch someone that cares about using it on a particular architecture or OS enough to port it, or suggest a path that might make porting something that doesn't make people bleed.

comment What do you mean by Javascript component development?
This is it, just writing code that can be easily decoupled and reused. Instead of a spaghetti bowl of anonymous functions hard-coded to project specific selectors, you end up with nice reusable functions and prototypes that you can plop in anywhere. IOW, well-designed, not just built in place 'till it works and then gets no further love.
