The point I was making with AWS is how much information is out there. GCP might have PHP as a first class citizen. It's still not something you'll find a lot of information about. There's a lot more information out there about using a custom runtime with Lambda than using native PHP with GCP.

That's also kindof the point. Do you need that much documentation for Lambda? Should you? The whole selling point of sercerless functions is that you have a function and it's executed on a trigger.
The whole idea that you need several pages of documentation to setup something that by definition doesn't need setup (particularly, say for a "hello world") is a but ridiculous.
You don't need pages of documentation to run Node code, do you? In the case of a Python application you might given the vendoring particularities but that's about it.
