Opinions on Zend Core for Oracle over PHP 5.1.4?!

I am getting frustrated of the PHP 5 releases chocking on OCI8 -- they
just seem really unstable as do recent ISAPI filters when run on
Windows 2003 Server. As an example the newest PHP 5.1.4 install for
Windows I did with OCI8 failed to load the OCI8 extension -- I wound up
dropping and older version PHP_OCI8.DLL into my install and restarting
Apache and everthing was great.

I just downloaded and installed the new Zend Core for Oracle (windows)
which comes with the 5.1.4 PHP version except no Oracle problems. Is
anybody working with the Zend Core / OCI8 package that can shed some
light on the stability and any general gotcha's before I start
installing Zend over the stock PHP distro from php.net?

Any thoughts appreciated.

Zend Core for Oracle is a great thing! I love it! It is canned installer,
thoroughly tested and working, which makes installation of PHP 5.1 with
OCI easy. If, on the other hand, you want to experiment with PECL modules
and live on the bleeding edge, Zend Core for Oracle is not for you.
