Symfony is a lot more like Nexista than I originally thought. I use the following web directory structure right under the web server directory root:

build/

conf/

htdocs/

logs/

php/

tmp/

usr/

xml/

xsl/

while symfony uses this layout:

apps/  frontend/  backend/

batch/

cache/

config/

data/  sql/

doc/

lib/  model/

log/

plugins/

test/  unit/  functional/

web/  css/  images/  js/  uploads/

Doesn’t seem to support xsl, which is too bad.
