and do not forget assembly.
personally, I prefer every scripting language, that is EASILY extendable.
ruby, python, php, tcl are all in this category.
lets agree, that we want a scripting language, not name one!

php + httpd is somehow cool. it is so different, thus i like it.
i do not like coding in php, but I would most likely not code on the
installer anyway.

for a good reference for a bikeshed about programming languages, look at
comp.lang.ruby, thread Python vs. Ruby:
a: Ruby is better, because a ruby smells better than a python.
b: but prepared right, a python is far more delecious.
i think this sums this whole discussion up.
