The business of moving extensions to PEAR appeals to me as I think that PHP
currently feels too big - especially from the point of view of the potential
new user with a dial up connection, who may well look elsewhere for
something smaller. However, I think the idea of moving some extensions to
PEAR and leaving others alone will produce a situation where 'knowing' where
to find an extension is not intuitive.

The two solutions to this which spring to mind are:

ALL extensions are in PEAR, and a download tool allows easy selection of
extensions, perhaps with a 'most common options' button to include the
favourite extensions.

As above except that the most common extensions are somehow promoted fom
being extensions into the core of PHP.

Maybe neither of these are ideal, but I just think we need to make sure that
whatever happens in logical and intuitive.
