Judging from open bugs, submitted patches and commits into CVS it looks to me thi project is as dead as a dodo.

If I run runtests.php, I get al those pesky 'pass by refernce' error for which a patch has been submitt by long.

Can anyone please shed some light on this project's status? How does this relate to the similarly named PEAR pakage?

I'm reluctant to install PEAR for now,but it looks like I have to if I want PHPUnit...
