You can refute the speed argument with the excellent mod_perl for Apache. And be sure to bring up the concept of having different namespaces when talking about PHP.

    PHP5 fixes a lot of issues, including namespaces. In fact, my personal checklist of things that annoy me about PHP compared to Perl are pretty much taken care of in PHP5. Now I just have annoyances that I can't quite articulate.
