This looks good.
Is this going to be brought into php, or is it going to remain a separate project?

Subject: [PHP-DEV] Reentrant C scanners for PHP
> This is the first public release of fully reentrant C
> scanners for the PHP language and the INI system. They

> - Flexible I/O model; lays groundwork for fully supporting
> modern web-servers such as Apache 2.0;
> - uses portable C only; significantly improves portability by
> removing dependence on GNU extensions of C++;

> The software is currently available in the form of three
> source files and a patch to the Zend Engine.
> To install, cd into the ngscan directory and run
> "make ZEND=../php4/Zend install", followed by a buildconf.
> Because software already exists to eliminate the scan/parse
