    Another interesting show guys.
    I agree with the principal that if you are going to work on a long standing product and a framework, plugin or orm etc doesn’t do EXACTLY as you want, then you are going to be much better off building your own to suit your product. I a have used Zend framework in the past and you can really build quite quickly but there are costs and one is performance, to get a Zend application or drupal or wordpress for that matter then you have to jump through caching hoops just to get reasonable performance.
