Yeah is totally sweet! Played with alpha one and it was about 300% faster

Eh......unless php4 does, I wouldn't hold out much hope. Their still
porting the inbuilt apache modules over to the 2.0 structure. From
apache_2.0a3/src/docs/initial_blurb.txt......."most of the modules still
need to be ported to the new module structure... but go slowly, we want to
be sure that the new init phases are the ones we require". And just
checked the php4-rc1 docs and there doesn't seem to be any reference to it
supporting apache-2.0 as a module. Suppose you could compile php as your
cgi parser (yuck IMHO).
And I _think_ there's still a memory leakage prob with 2.0, well there was
with alpah1 + alpha2, not sure about alpha3.
Just checked linuxtoday (http://linuxtoday.com/stories/20964.html) and
yeah it's still there :( ............"Apache 2.0a3 under UNIX has
undergone some testing, there are known issues in the current release,
including at least one small memory leak. ".
