(I'm sending this to the larger group, as not everyone is on the dev
list I think - I hope that's fine)
Good point about about Symfony and waiting - it would probably depend
upon when the project is kicked off.
As for a DI container, it shouldn't be too hard to create something
for the other frameworks as well that serve the same purpose (if they
don't already have it). Also, from my discussions with others
regarding DI containers, they're a fairly upper level layer thing -
you won't be creating all your objects with it, as it relies upon a
fairly stable structure. That's more of an academical discussion
though, as you'd be using service locators instead (and the likes).
Either way, obviously something to work towards (avoiding globals,
I think one of the more important points is how well a framework
lends itself to testing - how easy will it be to setup unit-tests with
the framework. Zend has got some problems in this area (it relies on
singletons for a number of things) but I don't think they're
insurmountable. Symfony looks like it's been created with an eye
towards testing, so there maybe something positive to come by there.
Not sure about CI and Cake, will have a look one at some point.
