in thread thoughts on creating modular perl for web application

A lot of places use PHP as a glorified rendering layer on top of a Perl backend.
I am curious, but why? Why use a hammer to bang a 3" nail in most of the way, and then use a screwdriver to hit on the nail head to drive it the last quarter inch? Why not just use the hammer all the way?

Or, just throw away the hammer and turn the screwdriver around and make it into a hammer. Would justify the adage, "No pain, no gain."
