Given the amount of GOOD PHP code available probably not necessary.

I'm on my second 'framework', the first worked well enough 4 years ago, but
newer developments left it behind. If I was starting now I would probably have
a look at Delphi4PHP, but given the code base I already have it's not a
sensible approach. Basically, there is probably a package that does what YOU
want off the shelf, and if it doesn't then modifying it is always an option.

What ever we suggest will probably not be right for you, but I'm more than
happy with what is running my websites and commercial systems, and PHPEclipse
to actually develop the new code.
