  Yes, that's a big reason in my experience. People tried using PHP with
  a multithreaded Apache long time ago, got burned, and are now afraid
  to try it again.

  I think it's mostly a matter of marketing now. I think it would be
  a good idea to go with a stable 2.2, and make a strong marketing
  push to get people to adopt it.
