You are not Facebook (at least yet).

They also choose to transform PHP into C++ for performance reasons. Not 
something the average large website would want to do.

The real question is would they use it again if they were to start over?

These decisions are influenced by a multitude of factors 
1. familiarity/popularity of a framework 
2. support
3. what someone thinks is "best" for specifications
4. cost
Notice only 1 of those factors was what was actually "best".

Also remember you asked this on a *Python* mailing list. I am sure you 
will get different responses on a PHP mailing list.
