Hi Taylor, how did you choose to use so many components from Symfony?

It just made sense not to re-invent the wheel on something like HTTP parsing. We can still build on top of it to offer convenience methods, etc. I choose to use Symfony for some of the more "boring" parts of the framework and we write our own custom components for more interesting things like database access, templates, queues, authentication, etc.
