We need to make pecl/sqlite work with 5.4, as currently it does not.
Why? We moved it out because it is not maintained anymore. As I agree
that the concept of "move to pecl" for dead extensions is a bad idea,
inciting users to continue to use with 5.4 instead of migrate their
code to sqlite3 is not a good thing.
I forget the details (and the related patch) but did work on one with
Johannes many months ago. The last step (which failed) was to get
pdo_sqlite2 to work with the shared PECL variant, IIRC. Then, make a
It can be applied to svn. I suppose we should add a note as well in
the documentation about this move.
Moving something to PECL should require that the PECL extension work with
the distribution that it was [re]moved from. Otherwise, it was not moved.
I disagree, it should work with the distro where it was still present.
If we stop to support something with a given release, there is no
point to give the wrong message to our users.
However, if someone feels like it is worth maintaining this dead
library binding and keep alive for 5.4+, he can indeed go ahead, but
unless we have such a person, I don't think we should release it or do
anything else for this extension and 5.4.
