They use PHP, txt2tags uses Python. This is a logical engineering choice.

PHP is the past (and a part of the present, but not the future), the
goal is a wider use of Python, and this open the door for txt2tags,
but not write a bad txt2tags with a bad language as PHP, for bad PHP
projects by bad PHP programmers.

The only other language implementation we need is a JavaScript one,
for the client-side real-time visualization.

For a great JavaScript hacker, I think it's possible.
