Have you taken a look at codecharge [1]? It seems to fit your bill, and is designed specificially to speed up the programming of skeletons (common database tasks, for one). A big plus is that with one click, a project can be converted from PHP to numerous other languages (ASP.NET, PERL, C#, etc.)

A side benefit is that if you don't know how to do a certain task in a language (say, database updates in C#), you can code the stuff in PHP and have it convert it to C# for you and you can read the code. I don't know what your budget is -- the software is priced at $279.95 (there is a free download that isn't hampered).
