Um, was the point was really taken? Translating programming languages
is *very* hard. Otherwise, it would be possible to just translate
Python to C, with all the obvious benefits.
Perhaps automatic translation of some standard PHP patterns is
possible? No, still too hard. Think about it.
The subspace _W inherits the other 8 properties of _V. And there
aren't even any property taxes.
