Stephen,

Yes it was indeed a personal message, I've replied to it with changed
headers but to summarize what I said and to contribute to the
discussion here, let me tell my personal opinion.

RevIgniter rocks.

That being said, both frameworks and languages can achieve wonderful
results, on a project such as the one me and Sivakatirswami are
working where we control everything, using LiveCode is a blessing.
Sometimes when you need to work in bigger teams or can't have a say in
which technology you will be using, you might end up with something
else.

The only advantage I think of using CodeIgniter + PHP is the sheer
amount of knowledge available ranging from books to irc channels and
the fact that there are gazillions libraries for PHP so you seldon
need to implement something on your own besides the business logic of
your software while with RevIgniter, there are sometimes the need to
implement something from scratch such as social network access for
example.

cheers
