I created a library that may draw some attention. Boost.PHP is a set
of macros and C++ classes that wrap around common Zend Engine structs
that allow you to create a PHP extension in C++, in a very efficient
way. Most notably, you no longer need most of the ZE macros and APIs
like ZEND_FE and zend_parse_parameters() since the library
automagically handles the signatures of your C++ functions and
enables them to be exposed just as they are.
