You forgot to mention, that just like in Lord Of The Rings where they all work together as a team to destroy the ring and defeat their enemies, teamwork in building PHP applications to make things better for everyone is just as important. I can't think of any major PHP application out there that doesn't have a community of developers striving to make that application better.

Yes, very good point. There are some discussions inside the PHP community, but in general people help each other a lot.
The mere existence of sites like PHP Classes for sharing PHP components is the proof of that. For other languages there are also sites for sharing components, but they are not exactly dedicated to those languages.
