I don't really want to get into an extended discussion about this, so I'll
just cover a couple of points and if we cant agree we'll just flip a coin.
> 1. Its faster
We're doing very simple queries, speed won't be an issue by any stretch of
> 2. User does not have to install pear db or keep it up to dat
PEAR DB is installed by default with PHP. Keeping it up to date is not an
issue, since there's going to be no bleeding-edge code.
> 3. Makes end deliverable nice and self contained
See above. No bundling means a smaller deliverable and less configuration
> 4. ADODB is written with commercial use in mind and therefore
> in fairness to it (while this is not normally the case with
> oss projects like pear) there is more consistancy in the
> support and its codebase.
The core PEAR libraries were developed by core PHP developers, and are
maintained by core PEAR developers.
> 5. C extension available for php making execution faster
Pretty sure you can phpize PEAR DB?
> 6. Exception handeling is built into ADODB (Whihc means ease
> of porting to php5 when the time comes)
Long way off.
> 7. it supports the pear syntax
