I don't buy that argument.  Are you saying that if Apache 1.4 had been
released with a couple extra modules but no threading or filters, then PHP
would have stuck with 1.3 because it works "well enough"?  No, I hope PHP
would have updated to 1.4 to take advantage of the current development
efforts.  Those development efforts include not just a couple new modules
(major ones like mod_ssl, mod_dav, mod_deflate, mod_auth_ldap, etc), but
lots and lots of other enhancements (IPv6, PCRE, improved negotiation,
better documentation, better non-unix support, many bug fixes, etc).

So why not just do a handler-based PHP for 2.0, and work on other problems
in the future.  This is a silly family quarel that is making everyone look
