I still believe the main problem here is that the people now in control
of the windows builds are paid by M$ and the whole exercise that they
were paid for was to make PHP actually work with IIS. It has been done
at the expense of having proper support for Apache in PHP5.3!

Adding to the problems is the fact that much of the older php
infrastructure is no longer available with PHP5.3 either due to the core
changes to 5.3, or to the 'new rules' for windows. And even on Linux I'm
now having problems with ensuring that my live installation is NOT
updated to 5.3 :( I've just had to build 5.2.11 from scratch to replace
the 5.3 build.
