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.

      Well that's good to hear (at least from a nonbiased standpoint ; ). I will admit that after first comparing Perl and PHP, I've never really given PHP a fair shot again.

      Should you wish a free refill for your personal checklist, have a look at http://tnx.nl/php and documents linked from there.

    And don't forget fastcgi which isn't nearly as deep as mod_perl but, if I'm correctly informed, is even faster for vanilla CGI.
