I fully agree that installing PHP shouldn't really be a requirement.
Mercurial for example has the phabricator extension as standalone
Python code. It essentially provides two commands, phabsend and
phabread, to get changes from/to the Phabricitor server. It doesn't
cover the "discussion" part of a review, but that looks reasonable on
the web UI to me. I don't know what the status of git tooling is here. I
think git-phab still requires arcanist to be installed.
