I'd like to use Selenium to automate a few web tasks (not for testing). I think I have Selenium RC Server installed, but have no way of writing "test scripts" since I can't find a client driver in PHP (see: http://seleniumhq.org/download/).

Is there a way for me to use Selenium with PHP? This seems to suggest I need PHPUnit http://www.phpunit.de/manual/current/en/selenium.html. I just want to automate a few tasks, not get involved with a full suite of testing.
