I've not used the C extension stuff, but I expect it's of good quality. 
The main advantage of using the .inc ones are that it's easy to
fix/modify the behaviour without running the risk of introducing scarily
deep bugs, and that it should be portable backwards even as far as PHP3.
The .inc ones are definitely handy when you have limited control over
your hosting environment.

But if you don't want to modify the API in any way and backward
compatibility/portability's not an issue, then the C extension version
might be a good idea.  I believe that Dan Libby's been testing it for
some time.
