(Full disclosure: I am the author of the Solar framework for PHP.)
Not to be flippant, but it looks like you have built a framework of
your own already.
I am not surprised that you don't see a compelling reason to use
something else. You have a familia way-of-working in tools and
techniques, and you don't want to change those to suit someone else's
way-of-working (which is perfectly fair).
To be clear, you won't be switching from "no-framework" to another
one, but from "your-framework" to another one. Changing to another
framework (one written by someone else) will require you to change
your approach and habits, and that sucks; just ask Laura Thomson.
I know that doesn't help much. :-/
