FWIW, I'd never use PHP with AOLserver. PHP is cool, but as far as I can see,
its reason for existing is basically "what cool stuff can we add to Apache"?
Which is cool. But Tcl is a very mature, very lightweight scripting language
for exactly this sort of function, and the AOLserver/Tcl combination is pretty
I use PHP because it's cool and fun to program, and quite good enough. But
AOLserver/Tcl is world-class.
