I am sure it does, but you also need to recognize that around 40% of all
Apache installations have PHP on them.  And 30% or so have mod_perl.  Many
actually have both, so there is some overlap, but I would say that over
half of all Apache installs have one or both of PHP or mod_perl.

Apache 2 is being pitched as a production-quality web server without any
mention of the fact that over half of the current Apache sites probably
should not upgrade at this point.
