 From Jeremy Zawodny's blog, on PHPCon (where Yahoo announced their 100% PHP move):


"The conference was closed by Dirk, one of the founders of Rackspace discussing 
the critical role that PHP played in getting Rackspace off the ground. He 
focused on PHP's integration, quick development times, and flexibility.

He then threw us a bit of a curve ball by revealing that a sizable chunk of 
their PHP code is being replaced by Python. The silver lining in the story is 
that SOAP is allowing them to keep much of the customer-facing stuff in PHP and 
the back-end code in Python."
