    The current Apache 2 support in PHP is based on filters only.
    That however is not well-supported by the scripting engine
    which prefers real file objects as input.

    The next huge problem is thread-awareness of Unix libraries.
    There are still lots of issues with libraries which won't
    correctly in a threaded environment.

    Now, we could solve both problems by using a handler and
    the prefork MPM.  But then, Apache 2.0+PHP is basically
    Apache 1.3+PHP with a few extra modules thrown in.  That's
    how it appears to the end-user at least.
