This isn't about PHP, it isn't about copyright, it is simply a bad

Debian should and does censor daft programming. Just because you can,
does not mean you should.

    I'm confused. You say this isn't about PHP but then adds that the
idea of a PHP webserver is ludicrous. I do not write in PHP, I do not
even like the language, but I find the criterion "What? They wrote
<software> in <language>? That's putrid!" to refuse packages a very
short-sighted one.
   But as others said, it seems that PHP packages are particularly
prone to bugs. Now, THAT'S a good criterion.
