PHP and Parrot

Parrot is virtual machine for dynamically typed languages such as Perl (version 6 will use Parrot for its execution). Two people have investigated, or rather are still investigating, if it’s possible to compile PHP code to Parrot bytecode. The Parrot runtime enviroment has some nice features such as JIT. Slides of the keynote they held about this on the PHPCon, can be found here.
