PHP Auction script opinions?

P: n/a
I've been looking for an auction script to use as a starting point in a
rewrite of a coldfusion auction site. The site is a member's only
auction, where different categories of *users* may not be able to see all
the auctions, so I know anything I get will need customization. I looked
at the only freeware scripts (webAuction - german scripts based on
phpAuction). It was nice, with a good start on i18n (most text was in a
separate dialog file), but it was written for a downlevel version of PHP,
and required globals. Argh.

Here's what I'm looking for:
o Should be written for PHP 4.3+
o No Globals! Must use super global arrays (e.g. $_POST[], etc for
security)
o Must have access to all scripts (prefer no encrypted scripts)
o must run on either Win or *ix (dedicated host is currently Win, but
we may move ISPs).

I started using PHP with 4.3, and some of the scripts I've seen that
*work* on 4.3, but *use* older coding styles (such as internally-built
session mgmt) are frankly confusing, and some are using deprecated code.

TopAuction looked interesting, but they insist on *ix server only.
PHPAuction.org insists that register_globals must be on, and is *ix only.

I've got some q's into GeoAuctions - they appear to be pretty good based
on their description.

Thanks,
Greg
