Apart from the obvious one: I can make those things in
Rev already, I don't know PHP and don't want to learn
something that looks like C ?

Don't get me wrong: I spend quite some time with Java
and do know a bit of PHP - but that doesn't mean that
I like those better than Rev. The most important thing
is that it gets the job done.
