AFAIK, the one showstopper is that the PHP libraries aren't threadsafe
while Apache 2 runs "Massively Multithreaded" so to speak. There is a
prefork-server for Apache 2 which is said to run PHP >4.3.something
reasonably well.

Just search the PHP maillists (especially devel) for apache2 and you'll
see a lot of "fun" stuff.
