+1 on the ANT / SVN / FTP deployment script.

I've also been playing with the templates for code completion, very handy for generating the larger phpdoc comments (like the ones at the top of each object).

IMHO this tutorial is well overdue.

$string = preg_replace('/[^\p{Ll}0-9_]/u', $settings['separator'], $string);
