PHP does not recommend running php as a module in a threaded 
environment, because a number of PHP extensions are not thread-safe. 
Apache2 MPM-prefork will run just fine with php as module.

Nick already told you, that Apache allows you to choose. So simply use 
the fast-cgi/mpm-event combo, if you like that best. And if you want to 
evangelize the combo, nobody is stopping you.

There not much more to say about this topic, so please consider it closed.

Best regards,
