PHP's handler is only:

    void php3_init_handler(server_rec *s, pool *p)
        register_cleanup(p, NULL, php3_module_shutdown, php3_module_shutdown_for_exec);
#if MODULE_MAGIC_NUMBER >= 19980527
        ap_add_version_component("PHP/" PHP_VERSION);

The expensive stuff doesn't happen until one of the main handlers is
called.  Not that I am arguing to make this change.  I guess I just like
watching myself type at 3am...
