My biggest objection for PHP is that it is (usually used as...) monolithic -
every library compiles into one single executable (I mean, there are no
'header' or 'stub' files for every php-module). But this might as well serve
as an advantage in this case! I think that the mentioned monolithic
executable is all that takes to run it (besides the usual things like libc
:) ).

Logic is a systematic method of coming to the wrong conclusion with
