Sadly this is true. quite a few times already I've thought about just
going back to PEAR. It doesn't have much to do with the code itself,
it's more of that "at home" feel.

I also have these thoughts that if PEAR went belly up, so could ADOdb.
Scary thought indeed. :-/

I do my own mods to ADOdb ;) So it does not bother me, certainly a LOT less than having to cope with all the 'improvements' in PHP itself!
