I think the important part is that PHP is finally starting to have a
reasonable infrastructure for having a proper ecosystem:

* Composer for dependency handling and easy library publishing
* PSR-0 for standard autoloading
* GitHub for collaborative development
* Travis for continuous integration

These four combined make it much easier to publish simpler, more decoupled
libraries that "just works". Node.js has a very similar infrastructure with
NPM, and there indeed this has produced hundreds of compatible modules that
are widely used, and that don't need any sort of monolithic project
governance structure.

I think there is still a place for an effort advocating library
interoperability, quality and coding standards. Zeta could be that, but it
needs to be part of this new ecosystem, not something standing outside of
