Re: Discuss Digest, Vol 19, Issue 20

 Would you be interested in trying a PHP extension that implements locking 
file system storage, caching, as well as some other interesting features? 

Like I said, I've been trying to get this extension to get some traction 
for some years, and I think I need some real live tests with it. The 
extension used to be in the PHP main distribution. It has since been 
improved and renamed. 

I use this system on my web site, and I have used it in the past for 
customers when I did consulting gigs.
