I think the word you're looking for is competent.

plz dont make me repeat myself, i've already indicated my reasons as
to why i want to keep my codebase in 1 language,

The above comment did not address your codebase and 1 language issue. It addressed the assertion that you need a C guru to write threaded C code.

and why i would like
to keep my large existing code base in php, and have php evolve with
the times, and allow applications written in it to grow easily to
large scale use.

it would expand the user base of php as well i think.

I think I'm going to win the lottery some day... I think.

Are you suggesting cross platform thread libraries don't exist? I wonder how
Apache does it... or MySQL... or any number of open source cross-platform
systems. If they implement their own, then by the virtue of the source being
open, you can feel free to incorporate.

adding all these things as custom extensions that are hard to maintain
and increase software complexity, is not what i want.

the reason i chose php is for it's simplicity of use.

Perhaps you should have chosen based on the functionality YOU want. PHP remains simple for a reason.

I think this will be me last comment to you. Your responses don't stay on track, they keep leading back to your constant "I want, I want, I want" screams. Let's list a few:

    I want to use PHP.
    I want threading in PHP.
    I want someone else to do it.
    I want to not have to change my designs.
    I want everyone to stop having their own opinion.
    I want to have my cake and eat it too.

Ummm... so yeah... I can see why the discussion is mostly degenerative. Have you even subscribed to the internals list yet?
