Is PHP too slow for your needs ? Is that the reason for changing ? If it 
is, then Python might not satisfy your need. If it isn't, have you 
thought about why you want to use Python ? If you have, are there 
greater benefits in total over PHP from what you understand of both PHP 
and PYthon.

Not sure where you are currently at with your evaluation of Python so if 
you could outline a few more points on your needs, wants, and 
expectations it would help when answering your questions about Python.
