If by correctly, you mean making the intensive functions in C and adding them on, I would agree. But PHP is in and of itself slow because it is a interpreted scripting language. Even when cached, it is less efficient than hand written compiled code. The reason for this is that PHP code commands the PHP engine, not the machine.
