This is what I am doing for one web application.  I use a chroot
environment to run an older version of PHP in an Etch environment
which requires some binary blob libs for a specific legacy
application.  One of these years I will kill that off but until then I
have it relatively contained in a chroot behind a proxy.  That works
fairly well.

I am just noting that you are not the only one with the problem and
that for my personal preference the chroot solution worked quite well
and is light weight.  Of course there are many other container
possibilities too.

Good luck!
