I have only minor experience with PHP so this may be ignorant, but isn't 
programming a web application with PHP scripts more comparable to 
programming such an application with Python scripts?  If PHP scripts are 
handling HTTP requests directly, that can also be done with pure Python 
scripts.  But if I have to put together a comprehensive web application I'm 
going to be developing a lot of scripts, unless I use an integretaed, 
pre-made package of scripts.  But then, that is really what Zope is, isn't it?

Call me confused,

"The commandments of the LORD are right, bringing joy to the heart. The 
commands of the LORD are clear, giving insight to life . . . For this is 
the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are 
not burdensome." (Psalm 19:8, 1John 
5:3)    <http://torahteacher.com/>torahteacher.com
