stuff in there. I'm wondering how much I can rely on it for a distributed
app. If I understand correctly, it's now included in the PHP distro, and
installed by default. What version did this start with? Is the default
installation just the base class, or are some of the packages included as
well? The tricky question is: does anyone have any idea of how commonly
it's installed? Do most hosting companies provide it? I know end users can
install it for themselves, but I have enough support issues without having
to hold users' hands on that.

Re: PEAR Availability
IME if a host doesn't support PEAR, you can simply upload the necessary
packages into your code base and simple add that directory to your
include path (using ini_set). Therefore, if PEAR isn't "available" on
the server, you can still use it.
