Is there any interest in adding MSSQL to php 5?  It's fairly easy to modify 
the spec to produce this (I've done so in a previos version already), and 
I'll volunteer to make the changes if there's consensus it's worth doing.  

FreeTDS is required to build mssql support, and it's currently provided 
through rpmforge.  I assume everyone would prefer to have the required 
library exist within centosplus so php-mssql could be installed without 
requiring a library from an external repo?

So, what are your thoughts on this?  I know I keep getting asked for it, so I 
assume there's at least some demand.
