But when using mod_php, worker is not recommended, right?
I doubt prefork scales as well as worker.
Working on making a FastCGI based setup the recommended approach
instead of mod_php is probably more important then async. Actually,
it's a prerequisite.

Having 30k threads still seems like a waste of resource to me though.
What about a hybrid approach?
Async for network IO and other stuff that doesn't require sync calls,
worker threads for other parts?
