You can also see text in our bug database from a prominent PHP developer 
saying that the filter API needs to be redone from scratch (my 
paraphrase).  For the enthusiastic PHP users, such comments carry a lot 
of weight and imply that PHP isn't production ready with 2.0 not because 
  nobody has made it a high priority to make PHP production ready but 
instead because there is something flawed about Apache 2.0.
