IMO it's stupid as well and I second Dick's opinion. The module
doesn't hurt anyone, and reduces confusion. I think that PHP is still
more heavily deployed on mod_php than on anything else. The Apache
module should be built by default unless there is a really strong
argument as to why it shouldn't.
