absolutely. fwiw, an even more clever way to include the library (with
php) is to place something like

php_value auto_prepend_file write_page.inc

in an .htaccess file.  if placed in your web root, you can make a
function library available to every page in the hierarchy, or apply a
standard header, etc. without an include(); statement on every page.
one of my favorite obscure-ish tricks.
