It is a debate that has been going on for some time on the PHP developers list 
after they striped many previously supported extensions from the windows PHP5.3 
build tree :( The reasoning was totally wrong, and for some time now we have 
been simply building the missing extension privately, but it is an utter pain 
when they could so easily have been automatically built in the main 
distributions. Especially since the linux builds never lost them ;)

What I need is now back in the windows PHP distribution and works nicely with 
the apachelounge builds. I've not tried running the 'official builds', and while 
I would expect them to work but there have been reports of problems. That may 
just be finger trouble, but when reporting problems on the PHP list at least one 
can say 'yes apache is a VC9 build!' to shut them up.
