I don't know about suPHP but a chose a different way.
I'm running a server for about 200 users (students) and I wanted to offer them 
full Apache+PHP functionallity without any restrictions.
I decided to run 200 indepentent small Apache-Servers utilizing the 
worker-Modell and the PHP5 module. Each Apache is listening on a separate 
port (of course) and I use on master Apache with mod_rewrite to proxy 
requests to user_dirs to the appropriate port number.
