{zone-data:overview}
Zend_Magic is a simple component that reads my mind and generates code dynamically to do what I want.
The "Requirements" tool is a tool for Zend Framework which checks the actual installation and helps the developer to see if there are missing extensions or ZF components.

{zone-data:requirements}
Most requirements take the form of "foo will do ...." or "foo will not support ...", although different words and sentence structure might be used. Adding functionality to your proposal is requirements creep (bad), unless listed below. Discuss major changes with your team first, and then open a "feature improvement" issue against this component.

* This component *will* correctly reads a developers mind for intent and generate the right configuration file.
* The generated config file *will not* support XML, but will provide an extension point in the API.
* This component *will* use no more memory than twice the size of all data it contains.
* This component *will* include a factory method.
* This component *will not* allow subclassing. (i.e. when reviewed, we expect to see "final" keyword in code)
* This component *will* only generate data exports strictly complying with RFC 12345.
* This component *will* validate input data against formats supported by ZF component Foo.
* This component *will not* save any data using Zend_Cache or the filesystem. All transient data *will be* saved using Zend_Session.
* This component *will* check the actual installation of PHP and the extensions.
* This component *will not* do installations or changes in the configuration.
* This component *will* be available for different GUIs (commandline, web, code)
