11 reasons why PHP sucks

Edwin Martin wrote en entry called "What I don't like about PHP" where he gives 11 reasons
  1. Bad recursion
  2. Many PHP-modules are not thread safe
  3. PHP is crippled for commercial reasons
  4. No namespaces
  5. Non-standard date format characters
  6. Confusing licenses
  7. Inconsequent function naming convention
  8. Magic quotes hell
  9. No standard framework
  10. No Unicode
  11. Slow
I do enjoy programming with PHP for simple websites.
What I really do not like is
#3/#11, this is right, why are the caching tools not included in PHP !?
#7, I find it soooo ennoying after using clean API in java ...
