What I think is useful information to people who want PHP+Apache-2.0 is:

a) is PHP not production ready with Apache 2.0 because it was not high 
enough priority for PHP to be tested?


b) is PHP not production ready with Apache 2.0 because Apache 2.0 must 
be fixed before such a thing is even possible?

I see more comments implying b) than a).  As such, it seems that anybody 
that wants to hack PHP to work better with 2.0 is wasting their time.
