Bug description:  Release Quality

As a happy user of PHP I'd love it if 

a) Releases (4.0.5) could be installed across server farms, compiled to commandline 
versions to support shell/console scripting, packaged in various ways for different 
workloads (ie adding IMAP) without the sinking fear that in a few days to a week or 
two I'll see pl1, pl2, pl3 and have to go through the who rigamarole again. So fewer 
patches, more RC's :)

b) Extensions that are broken do not ship with the distribution. The quality of the 
extensions reflects on php itself. A few always seem to be borked but live on through 
releases. The folks that want to fix borked extensions can probably do so even if they 
are not included in the distro. Hand in hand with that is at least keeping a rough 
idea (or requiring the submitter to) on keeping up to date with extensions, which 
often are based on evolving external libraries and projects. 

c) Bluesky: Bloat numbers on the manual for the different extensions. This contibutes 
x bytes to cgi/apache module or whatever...
