Yeah - but dl is useful for development. To be honest (I and most core
devs I know), just recompile php as a cli when debugging. Using dl() is
an afterthought, since you rarely have to do a make clean anyway, it
takes just as much time, and usually requires less futzing (all your
object files are assured to reference the same symbols.)
