I don't think it's as bad as all that, unfortunately.

Obviously the parameters/attributes/etc. in the session and request 
could be marshalled into an object/xml/blob that PHP could understand; 
there are some useful utilities in the sandbox made just for that purpose ;)

Session tracking is trivial, just use the session ID from the java side 
and keep a hash on the PHP side that uses the same ID (I do something 
similar with Lisp using Lisplets).

The easiest way, of course, would be to write jPHP and have phpServlet 
and phpTags so you could have both PHP-only presentation but still allow 
mixing of PHP code via phpScriptlets in your existing 
JSP/Velocity/FreeMarker pages.
