I've yet to see one, which doesn't come to say that they don't exist (you 
named a couple) - but does come to say that Perl did not succeed at 
becoming a serious contended in the GUI market.

As I told Manuel, the issue isn't *time*, but *timing*.  If PHP's goal was 
to become a serious contended in the GUI app market (which it was not) - it 
long missed this opportunity.  GUI applications of PHP are cool, can be 
very useful, especially to people who already know PHP.  However, assuming 
that it would ever catch a significant share of the GUI market is naive, IMHO.
