Funny how they word it: 'Apache has moved on', when in fact they are saying 'we now do less work for you'.
How this is 'moving on' escapes me :-)

Meanwhile there are now 3 modules that handle the FastCGI protocol: mod_fastcgi, mod_fcgid, mod_proxy_fcgi.
Probably the maintainers of mod_fcgid/mod_fastcgi quit, and their successor didn't understand the code, so 
they wrote a new module :)

The mod_fastcgi module is the first and presumably still the best: it handles everything (and more) that 
mod_fcgid and mod_proxy_fcgi handle separately; the latter 2 each only handle one way of working.

But we can see how the wind blows, so we'd better get started on this multithreading approach :(
