I am wondering if there are any languages that extend PHP into something ahem "better"?

They don't have to necessarily be able to interact with PHP, but it is certainly a benefit if they can (e.g. call PHP functions or even be called from PHP).

You can use C to interact with PHP, and thus you can get any language that can interact with C to interact with PHP.

Clearly, we need someone to write PHPython.

Here's an article from CodingHorror about Wasabi, a language which apparently compiles down to PHP among other strange things:

If you mean extending PHP's capabilities, I assume the plentiful modules that exist for it already do that...
