Well, everyone is entitled to their opinion. I'd much rather type
<?=$somevar?> than <?php echo $somevar;?>.
It all comes down to what you're used to. If you use php as a template
language, short tags are an incredibly useful and valuable feature. If
you don't, you probably think "ugh, that doesn't look like php."
On the other hand, if I ever have to hack the php source to enable
short tags, I'll change them to [; and ;] so I can stop wearing down
my pinkie on the shift key.
