Why would you expect to find anything specific?  There's no
recommended 'best practice' for using multiple scripting
languages and environments: you could use the modules,
or CGI/fastcgi, or proxy a backend.  The only issue that arises
from using more than one together is the risk of being bitten
by some bug, but you won't know until you try.

One thing I would suggest: either compile everything yourself
or install everything from distro packages, don't mix-and-match.
The latter might put you at higher risk of linking multiple
versions of the same library.
