I guess that is a feature of the code written in PHP, rather
than of the language itself. Some languages make it harder to
write bad code. No language makes it impossible.
I think that the single critical question to ask about any
development in a digital library environment is it's ability
to deal with Unicode and it's related standards such as UTF-8.
Last time I looked at it, PHP had problems is that area.
These problems will bedevil anything you write in PHP, no
matter how elegant you code.
