To be completely fair, the bugs are neither with apache 2.0.x nor the core of 
PHP, it is a combination of known thread-safe apache and PHP implementations, 
with non-thread safe PHP extensions.  There are four solutions to said problem.

1) Convince the original author to make a thread safe version of their extension.

2) Find another, thread safe library/extension to do the work for you.

3) Write/purchase your own thread safe implementation of said extension.

4) Use another solution/language to perform the operation in question.

Complaining about these problems on php or apache mailing lists, or trolling /. 
will not get any of those four done any faster.
