yes.  i've been using it routinely on all my webservers for several
years now.  it's a very nice MPM - i use it with static html, php5, 
and libapache2-mod-speedy (for HTML::Mason) sites.

NOTE: none of my current web servers are high traffic. OTOH, the
apache2-mpm-itk author runs several high traffi web sites using it.

the only minor hassle is (if you're running sid or testing), you
have to flag apache2-mpm-itk as held, because updated packages for
it are usually a few days behind apache2-common...and an upgrade of
apache2-common without a matching a2-m-itk will want to remove a2-m-itk
and install a2-m-prefork instead. so just hold a2-m-itk and upgrade
it manually (with 'apt-get install apache2-mpm-itk') when the updated
version is available.

BTW, performance is roughly equivalent to apache2-mpm-prefork.  AFAIK,
php still doesn't work properly under the threading mpms (not that
there's that much performance difference on linux between threaded and
pre-forking apaches - fork on linux is very lightweight).
