One of the most important changes I suggested for 4.1 was to move
stuff like the XSLT extension, cURL etc. out of the php4 CVS module
and into PEAR.  There they can live their own lives, producing stable
output now and again.  The PHP distribution bundles the latest stable
release from each extension/package we want to bundle, but until then
they are completely separate from PHP itself.

I don't see 4.1 happening if we have to keep coordinating the TODO
lists of 80 extensions.
