I don't know much about the legal issues, but I think it's a good time
to decide about that.

FastCGI is very popular and should be available by the
apache-distribution. mod_fcgid did a nice start with their
process-control (in shared hosting environments), but it's lacking good
documentation and active maintenance.

When I read the question about the current development state of
mod_fcgid, I thought about to spent some time on it to (try to) improve
things, but I wouldn't be worth if Apache httpd would come up with
native FastCGI support in 2.4.x.
