    Might be hard for you to wrap your head around, but you can make a slotted screw into a Phillips head by making an intersecting, right angle cut, in the head with a dremmel........

    They especially suck when attaching hardware on stained wood, just one slip and you have a scratch. Maybe some industrial designer likes the look.
