There are a lot of people waiting for it.  The issue currently is not
stability, it's compatibility.  It does not work with mod_ssl nor
mod_rewrite, and many other critical modules.  These are show stoppers to
any wide-spread deployment.  nginx and others working in conjunction with
Apache have attempted to fill this role, but they have the same
show-stoppers as Event MPM, and when you implement their work-arounds, you
end up worse off than using straight pre-fork.  Other options use fast cgi,
which is dog slow compared to CLI.  A compatible Event MPM is sorely needed.
