Message Am I sure it would be a good idea? Well I do have at least *some* evidence
I mean IBM hasn't really done open source PHP until they did SDO which is
a C++ and PHP API similar in purpose and design to creole and propel, SDO
is to PDO as propel is to creole, meaning SDO relies on PDO for its data
accessibility. PDO unlike creole is written in C (afaik). SDO unlike propel
in C++,
PDO and SDO unlike propel and creole must be installed into PHP either
through ./configure or dynamically through phpize, moved to the location
specified in
php.ini as extension_dir = and loaded like you would a standard .dll or .so
SDO does not have "optionally" a script-able interface to itself from PHP,
it actually
requires it since SDO was never completely ported to C++ from PHP, or they
find the time to write the remaining portions so those objects are written
in PHP 5, there
is no PHP 4 version as SDO remains completely dependent on PDO for database
Therefore I think it would be a *good* idea because they can be similar in
speeds and propel
can obviously spit out PHP 4, PHP 5 and now C++, why not PECL? or why not
write the other
classes as PHP 4 and PHP 5 compatible and then refactor that into a PECL so
the only
scripting is done on initialization code, makes little sense not to pursue
this because *some*
people cannot personally install an extension in their web server which
would actually lower
the load on the server and increase the throughput for this *good* type of
      I would just like to say that I don't use SDO, I use propel and creole
because I just like to,
I rewrote creole and propel to be PHP 4 AND PHP 5 compatible and like that
much better in
my "rapid" framework whose design includes things for SEO and SOA.
      I've requested before at least for mine or the PHP 4 version be dual
licensed under LGPL
and BSD License, so that I can dual license MY framework under BSD license
as well, also
SDO is provided under much less restriction than the LPGL. I think helping
make these patterns
for advanced web application programming better and faster will help
everyone. I know I wouldn't
of had any reason to dedicate a couple years using propel and creole, or
want to be involved had
it not been for such good open source contributors like Hans, the PHP user
groups and yourself.

Ps, Here's a list of sites on the matter that may shed some light on SDO and
PECL implementations
where you can subclass classes and more. Don't forget to look all in the CVS
code and tests..
