PHP 'died' along time ago with python (django) and Ruby (rails) and more
recently Node.js or client side 'MVC'

Every one of those moved away from embedding the host language in the
templates and used a basic interoperable templating system because embedded
php / erlang just generated terrible code

erlydtl as I remember was quite nice
