What about perl?

Supports, 00, is not TOO difficult and can be compiled directly to an
executable :D

But I still like to keep PHP since all the work people put into it.

Always read the manual for the correct way to do things because the
number of incorrect ways to do things is almost infinite

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.
