Thanks for the great response so far! A quick summary:

- Norbert S, Mike SJ & Brandon L all said they've written an API of some
sort. That's three.
- Two other people contacted me off-list to let me know they have private
APIs they've written that they'd be willing to license to me. That makes
- I already have my own API (really bad, not OO, not complete). Which makes
six separate PHP APIs for PDNS.

So I think there is clearly some demand here. :-)

Nick, I really like your proposal, and think you should run with it. I'll
definitely sponsor it, as outlined earlier. However, there are two things
that are must-haves for me to be able to do so:
1) I hope you don't hate me, but no PEAR. I like PEAR, and have used it for
many projects in the past, but the current software we need this for doesn't
use PEAR, and I really really don't want to introduce that dependency to be
able to use the API. :-)
2) On the licensing, we need some license that lets us redistribute it
without having to redistribute the code built on top of it. I'm open to
suggestions... a BSD-style license might work well. 

I would also suggest you check out Norbert's code. It does appear to already
have many of the features that you've outlined, and could be a great place
for a jumpstart.

Finally, I have a dev server I can give you access to if you want (in
addition to the sponsorship). Contact me off-list for more info.

Maybe the next step would be to put together a comprehensive technical plan
and post it to the list for review. Thoughts?
