Yep .. the "Dynamo" approach, I was actually pretty pysched when the
thought of writing + linking directly to other .jsp's as components was
announced.  I don't think there is really an anology to JavaBeans as
PHPBeans (its really just set/get methods) but Id really like to get it
going for a number of reasons, one being IDE support, alot easier to
work with.  I think to each his own in terms of templating, if you can
cycle through result sets w/ tags cool, if its with Smarty {} braces

I just think its a cleaner/manageable approach .. for PHP5 I can see
people using it .. or @ least trying to :-)
