PHP isn't such a bad choice for something like this.  PHP was designed to
make database integration simple.  If he were to write it in C, it would
run as a CGI most likely, and not as a module, and thus be much slower.
You could argue that he should do it in Perl and use mod_perl instead, or
write it in C and use FastCGI.  I wouldn't complain about his choice though.
I am just happy someone is willing to spend some time building a system
like this.  It is a bit rough at the moment, but hopefully with a bit of
constructive criticism a useful tool can come out of it.
