I second this wholeheartedly. ;-)

Now, I have some experience hiring four PHP developers about a year ago... 
but all salaries will be in San Francisco Bay Area numbers, so adjust 
them accordingly.

Sr. Developer, 8 years exp, 3 yrs PHP, signifigant prior projects, proj
mgt.: 105K
Sr Developer, 12 years exp, 2 yrs PHP, number of smaller projects: 90K
Developer, 4 yrs PHP (he knew Rasmus), signifigant DB exp.: 80K
Developer, 2 yrs PHP, good DB skills, excellent perl portfolio: 80K

Hope that those and a grain of salt are useful to you.
