I have considered this as well.  The idea of trying to get the
necessary copyright assignments from people seems very difficult when
all you have to go on is a name like ‘Ryan’.

I want there to be a version of php-mode.el that can go into the GNU
ELPA, because when I introduce my programming friends to Emacs a major
mode for PHP is often one of the first things they want.  The way
things are now, they go to a site like the Emacs Wiki and see a
variety of modes and are not sure which to pick.

More and more I am beginning to think Lennart may be right in saying
that it would be less work to rewrite php-mode.el from scratch.  If
the community at large agrees, then I will personally volunteer to
write and maintain the code.  Does anyone else think this is a better
route to pursue?
