I'd personally say that PHP was originally intended to essentially be
a framework for the web, but has since evolved in to its own language.
It's just my opinion though...
Well you can see that some basic facts from PHP history can prove you wrong:
Actually PHP started as a set of perl scripts and then was rewritten in
C as a form interpreter.
Of course you could always think what you want even if it is not a fact
and the fact is that it's purpose was never to become a C or C++ API
for web applications.
Not to mention that there is a difference between a framework and an API.
