Thanks for your reply first.

I understand Apache already support fastcgi, however, phper most
likely will prefer mod_php, so fastcgi in Apache is not as popular as
in other http servers.

Similarly, later Apache 2.x might officially support event based model
rather than multi-process one.

We know that fastcgi & event based model have some very attractive
reasons, such as better usage of cpu time, more robust even under high

I am not asking whether/when Apache support these functions, I want to
learn more abt from the Apache httpd developers, their way of thinking
behind these approaches..why they are not good or not suitable in
Apache, why?

I belive there must be some reasons behind. :)
