We use the PHP API currently.  The PECL version may be "faster" in 
tests, but in the real world, you just don't notice.  I also like being 
able to fiddle with the PHP code to make it work like I like it rather 
than having to mess with C code and recompile, etc. etc.

Of course, even though we do use Gentoo, we are not using PHP, or any 
PHP code, from portage.  Our codebase predates our use of Gentoo and we 
have not found the time or need to do so.

That new PECL API is quite new.  If I were you, I would not mark it 
stable for a while.
