It plainly couldn't be /impossible/ because PHP is Turing Complete.
That's nonsense, you're one of the many people who talk about Turing Completeness, yet have no idea what it actually means. Turing Completeness means that you can compute the value of every computable function, it does *not* mean you can "do anything" with it. The untyped lambda calculus is Turing Complete, and yet you can't write web sites with it as it doesn't provide any I/O facilities.
