My approach is to use PHP with the Smarty templating system for the
web front end.  All program logic and "heavy" lifting (and even
the light lifting) is done by a backend Python program accessed
via XML-RPC.  That lets me use each language for what it is best
and most productive at.

Testing is easier since you can do it via XML-RPC.
