I'd imagine that embedding PHP into IC, or vica-versa, would be
extremely slow if at all possible.

You wouldn't convert PHP to JS, you'd convert it to Perl. JS is client
side, PHP is server side. Perl would be much easier to integrate in to
IC as well.

Beware the great sin of PHP, intergrating layout and functionality ... D'oh!
