I've spent the past few days looking at various PHP web development frameworks. I need something flexible and lightweight but I'm not 100% happy with any of them. Don't get me wrong, a lot of thought has gone into some of these frameworks, but I want something that can scale without compromising speed of execution at any size.

Most of the frameworks I looked at seem to be copying Ruby on Rails to varying degrees, which has disadvantages as well as advantages. I'll probably learn the Ruby language and its Rails framework at some point, but now is not the right time.

Instead, I'm going to write my own framework based around the Model-view-controller (MVC) architecture.
