Hi Walter,

I talked with my boss today. We think that the effort might me a bit much to 
pay for a single company. Why not set up a project on a crowdfunding platform 
and ask more hosting companies to participate?

We (comsolit.com) would be interested to do this job. But it would be fair and 
correct to first ask the regular PHP Team members whether one of them might 
want to work on this, like Ondřej Surý, Thijs Kinkhorst or Lior Kaplan.

Do you have a tight time frame for this?
