Not true. The FreeBSD based router m0n0wall uses php for all of it's
scripts. There's nothing intrinsically webbish about php although the original
intent was to cook up something similar to ASP (from whatever I have gathered
by listening to Rasmus Lerdorf at FOSS.in) .

As for python based templating systems that allow python code and html to be
mixed together, there are quite a few - Kid, for instance.

Classic case of 'Worse is better'.
