I'm still catching up on email, so apologies if someone has already
replied to this...

There are two basic problems in getting PHP to work with Apache 2:

1) PHP wants to pull data (both POST bodies and php scripts);
    but Apache 2 output filters want to push data. Buffering the
    entire output stream is not feasible.

2) PHP depends on many third party libraries, many of which are
    neither reentrant nor threadsafe.
