Critically, there are times when, given the constraints of a problem (both political and technical), PHP is actually the better option. For example, for all its warts, it's generally a better idea to build a web application in PHP than in C. This despite the fact that C is quite a reasonable programming language certain problems, it is considerably more labor-intensive than PHP and can result in even more security-critical mistakes.
