I love how to try a Rails app out, I just type script/server. I wish there were a way to do something similar from the top level directory of a PHP project.

This answer to the question "Downloading php files from python simple http server" caught my attention.

Any thoughts on how that answer could be adapted to work with a PHP project directory tree?

You don't want to do that, since things such as redirects will be broken. Use something like WPHP instead.
