But Drupal sometimes annoys programmers, who don't like procedural programming as much these days.
Then came the news that Drupal will use Symfony2's HttpFoundation -- making programmers a little (maybe a lot) happier about the popular CMS.

His last words sum up these recent developments nicely:
Welcome Drupal community to the Symfony2 community. I am excited to become part of yours!
