GCJ was just an example - we could also use one of the small Java VMs
that are available. Java offers many advantages over C++ that make
programming easier and safer. Granted, maybe not more efficient, but
it should be much faster than an interpreted language like PHP
anyway. ;)

That said, Java per-se was only an example too - I'm just not
convinced that a daemon in PHP (that needs to deal with things like
multi-threading) would be feasible, fast and reliable. Furthermore, I
think OO in PHP is clumsy at best.
