Yes, I understand that there will need to be both a PHP4Server and a
PHP5Server; or perhaps a version with both 4 and 5 installed. It adds
about 1MB to the installer size and the web server used can handle
domain specific MIME bindings. The hoops we have to go through to
solve other people's mess. Sigh...

My feeling is that the PHP5 dll is a further development of the PHP4
version and that creating a version that will work with both 4 and 5
is not all that difficult. I need to contact Ard, I think.

Ah, I used too grand words. It was actually built from the PHP code
base. Changing names & dll bindings is not very much work at all.
