PHP feature RFC != IETF RFC's.

Go back and read my original proposal on the issue. What I had in mind
was something more like what Perl has done with the Perl 6 RFC's, or
(perhaps) the PEP's of Python...

The point being that there is a LOT of discussion on certain topics, and
people often change sides on an issue over the life of the discussion. I
was simply trying to say "Let's make this a *bit* more orderly.", mainly
becuase I had already lost track of several of the then-current threads
on the zend-engine list.
