Zend is nasty - they had to change the licence in PHP4 from gpl to a BSD
free-ish one because zend was originally under the qpl (I think).  Zend
have decided to release thier caching / complier stuff commerically for
loads of money.  Another company has released a GPL cacher ....

I feel that zend rewrote the underlying script engine for php, so that
they could then "sell" it or sell the add ons.
