Feasibility of splitting out web components of lang/php5

I do package build systems that support a variety of types of end
systems. (Nearly) all of them use php in some form or another, but a
substantial portion of them don't have web servers, and therefore don't
need the cgi, apache module, or the apache dependency that comes with them.

What would make my life a whole lot simpler is if lang/php5 were the
command line version, and the cgi and apache modules were separate
ports. Is this feasible?
