I'm not too familiar with Tuxedo but the first step would be for you to 
actually write a PHP module which interfaces with Tuxedo. Once you're done 
with it/tested it and you feel it's worth putting into PHP we can open you 
a CVS account.
I don't think there are many people who will need this kind of module but I 
might be wrong. In any case, once we create a repository for modules which 
live outside the PHP CVS we could then move it there.
