No, you are as wrong as you can be ;) I've considered using symfony
months ago and found so many things I dislike that much I decided to
create my own specialized framework, or better, web engine in this case.
Unfortunately I cannot make my engine free software but convinced my
employer to let me contribute back to the community.

Yes, symfony is not only one heavy beast of a framework but I felt like being kept in cage with it. Symfony somehow forces you to always do things the symfony way.

Right now I'm not doing something like that, fortunately. But thanks for
the info, so I don't have to benchmark that myself anymore.
