Let's go back to my 1st e-commerce example.  The manufacturers list is
about 3,700.  The categories is about about 2,400.  The products list
is right now at 500,000 and expected to be around 750,000.  The site
is only in English.  The store owner wants to expand and be I18n:
Chinese, French, German, Korean, Spanish.  You see how big and complex
that database gets?  The store owners want to have this happens when a
customer clicks on a category:

* show all subcategories for that category, if any
* show all products for that category, if any,
* show all manufacturers, used as filtering, for that category and subcategories
* show price range filter for that category
* show features & specifications filter for that category
* show 10 top sellers for that category and related subcategories
* the shopper can then select/deselect any of those filters and
ability to sort by manufacturers, prices, user rating, popularity
(purchased quantity)
* have the ability to switch to another language translation on the fly
* from the moment the shopper click on a link, the response time (when
web browser saids "Done" in the status bar) is 5 seconds or less.
Preferably 2-3 seconds. Will be using stopwatch for the timer.

Now show me a website that meets those requirements and uses PHP, I'll
be glad to support your argument about PHP w/o threads :)  BTW, this
is not even enterprise requirement.  I may have another possible
project where # products is over 10 million easily.  With similar
requirements when the user click on category.  Do you think this site,
which currently isn't, can run on PHP?
