I have a question for the developers of Phalcon, who are familiar with the internal workings of the framework.
I have a ZF1-based project and I decided to substitute ZendLoader with Phalcon\Loader to gain performance. ZendLoader is relying on classmaps to load classes.
To my great surprise, there was almost no difference in performance.
Which I find very hard to believe, knowing how bloated Zend_Loader is (regular expressions and so on).
Can Phalcon\Loader essentially be as slow as Zend_Loader using classmaps?
