There is a major problem with that approach. The reason it's easier to find
a PHP developer is because the language is cheap. It's really easy to
learn, and tons of people learn it to get a job. The PHP knowledge pool is
very shallow though. That means almost PHP developers are very shitty
developers that stopped learning because PHP doesn't really have a very
proficient level to it.

So companies that figure "hey, there are more PHP developers than
Perl/Python/Ruby - I'll get programmers in those!" end up with really
really horribly shitty code that it's impossible for them to actually get
beyond of. I've worked at a lot of these companies. It's horrible. Really

Don't be duped by number of developers overall. Think about "available
developers", "developer knowledge and expertise" and "ability to provide a
good product". Who gives a shit if there are less developers if I can still
find enough?
