Obviously, it's not possible. And I like to quote Python, so I will here.
urllib, and urllib2, and BeautifulSoup, and HTMLParser, all offer far more
possibilities than PHP, and I don't think anyone can argue that (woe to
those who do!).

Well, this is why I compare PHP to other language's frameworks; all PHP
offers is a simple, function derivative focus on the web, while Ruby on
Rails offers a complete package ( as much as I may dislike Ruby itself ),
and the various Python frameworks do the same.
