Ensim uses php scripts as part of their CLI administrative tools. It
struck me as wierd at first, too, but that seems to have been more a matter
of my expectations than because of any real problems.
I think one of the major barriers to improvement for FreeBSD's sysinstall
is the complexity of the application, and a small/simple language like PHP4
will "fix" that. (i.e. even I could work on it.)
