A common misconception. Anyone doing serious work with WordPress would 
have to learn both because they'd have to be able to read both dialects, 
even if they only chose to write in one or the other.

The importance of readability in code is vastly underestimated. A 
multitude of ways to say the same thing makes writing code marginally 
easier at the expense of a more than linear increase in the difficulty 
of reading code.
