spawn-fcgi did not work properly for me. i've mentioned it in the past.
it didn't properly recycle engines or honor the PHP_FCGI_MAX_REQUESTS
and it still required something to trigger it.
php-fpm is built-in to PHP, it matures PHPs fastcgi implementation,
fixes some bugs, has some acceleration features built in, makes
managing multiple fastcgi pools a breeze, it has proper execution
timeouts, honors child request counts, gracefully reloads engines,
allows for overrides of ini settings, seems just like nginx with its
multiple restart/reload options, i could go on and on. a better
website/comparison/etc needs to be done, but i can tell you i've tried
them all and php-fpm is the -best- and i consider -only- proper way
now to do php fcgi management, period.
