Nor can you typically run tidy there. Virtual machines are really cheap these
days (starting at about $30 / year), so cost is no longer the issue that
prevents people from installing better tools for the job. Missing packaging is
another point, but that is also being addressed (parsoid is now debianized).

In any case, we are working on being ready to start using Parsoid HTML for
normal page views this summer. We might not want to maintain the PHP parser in
the longer term, and are thus less likely to spend much effort on replacing
tidy right now.
