Carey came with a nice idea to make variant independent "global" changes.
It's more a hack, but a cool idea.
Only some changes to the __call()-function of the variant-class are required:

Add this to your config.php:
    * An array of mods available on the server.  They should be put in order of precedence.
    * @var array
   public static $mods=array('ChatBeforeGame');

Here is the code:
   public function __call($name, $args) {

      // Search for a variant modification
      $variantfound = false;
      if( isset($this->variantClasses[$name]) ) {
         $variantfound = true;

      // Search for mod modifications
      $modfound = false;
      foreach (Config::$mods as $value) {
         if (file_exists("mods/$value/$name.php")) {
            $classnamemod = $value."_".$name;
            $modfound = true;

      // If we didn't find any variants or mods, just
      if (!$variantfound && !$modfound) {
      } else if ($variantfound && $modfound) {
         $code = file_get_contents("mods/$value/$name.php");
         $code = str_replace ("extends $name", "extends $classnamevar", $code);
         $code = str_replace ("<?php", "", $code);
         $code = str_replace ("<? php", "", $code);
         $code = str_replace ("?>", "", $code);
         eval($code); // Yes I know eval is generally considered bad, but anything different would require changing the code of the entire system
      } else {
         if ($variantfound)
            $classname = $classnamevar;
         if ($modfound) {
            $classname = $classnamemod;

      // Not elegant, but I know no other way and this does the job

Got very bad net here (in Scotland atm), so haven't been able to verify this statement, but I'm pretty sure the last section can be simplified by use of ... -array.php
