In general, that's correct. But I can't seem to find any advantages
of using PHP over Python for web programming. It's not only the
number that matters.
More than the language itself (or the numbers), it's the platform that
matters. Python has Zope and Twisted, which are excellent environments
for developing medium/large web applications.
For instance Zope offers-
1. Excellent security model that's really easy to use.
2. Protocol transparency (your python methods can be invoked over
HTTP, XML-RPC, etc).
3. Object persistence.
4. The builtin Zope Object Database.
5. Transactionally safe object database.
6. Cool features such as heirarchies and acquisition.
Twisted is similar framework but focusing developing custom network
servers and other apps.
I'm not aware of such extensive development environments for PHP.
