PHP Everywhere: To C or not to C, that is the question

John benchmarked a C PHP extension versus native PHP code and discovered the speed-up wasn’t that great and I have to agree, not worth the restrictions not coding in PHP provides.
At work, we’ve thought of moving code into a C extension lots of times but this proves it’s not worth it. If you use a PHP Accelerator/cache then it’ll make even less sense!
This is one weblog entry I’m posting around the office for general consumption.
