I have finally had time to test this. I did a clean installation of Apache
2.0.50 and PHP 5.0.1.

Sadly, it did not work any better than my previous experiments with PHP 4.
PHP documents gets the file's output prepended, while others (plain .html
docs and images) are untouched.

Jeroen, are you *really* sure this works as you suggests? If you have
auto_prepend_file set in the doc root of a VHost, and that file is something
like <?php echo "xxxxx"; ?>, are all images currupted? If the
auto_prepend_file contents really gets prepended, they should be.

Everything, including PHP docs and source and common sense, suggests that
only files that are otherwise parsed by PHP will be affected by the
directive, and non-PHP documents are normally not parsed by PHP's handler. I
hope you can show me otherwise ;)
