Have you looked at Quercus?

It's a highly performant PHP implementation implemented as a Java
servlet.  I have seen benchmarks which suggest that it as fast as
Enterprise PHP and extending it with Java methods is trivial.  If you
like PHP (which I don't especially), you still have the opportunity of
doing XSLT 2.0 in that environment.
