Well, to be fair, it's not quite that.

Start with http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/FogBugzIII.html --
they had a VBScript app and it needed to be on PHP. So they wrote
a VBScript to PHP compiler.

Good choice, given the market pressures.

Three years later, they've extended that compiler a little in the
direction of a FogBUGZ specific DSL and given it a silly name.

Not particularly surprising, nor particularly relevant to language
debates.
