I'd agree with that assessment, especially if you think you may need to
modify the code at some point.

In my experience, PHP scripts usually seem to run faster than Perl scripts
as well. Which of course depends on many factors, but overall (and
especially on shared servers where it's not easy to tweak Perl configs) PHP
is more fleet of foot.
