Note that I only require a command-line PHP interpreter. A PHP web
server module (e.g. mod_php or php-fcgi) is not required. I also
don't require any special features to be compiled into PHP, so the
simplest ./configure && make && make install of PHP should be

Also, the only reason I chose PHP is because it's the language I'm
most comfortable with at the moment. It should be possible to convert
it to perl or ruby or python or any other language you're more
comfortable running on your server. The script is only about 130
lines long, including comments, and it only took a few hours to write
in the first place. I imagine an accomplished perl programmer could
do it in half that size.
