I've had zero issues with spawn-fcgi over the last couple years.   I
can't speak for anyone else, but the appeal of maintaining a custom PHP
build is of zero interest to me.

AFAIK, spawn-fcgi can be used to launch any FCGI app.   I rarely use
FCGI *except* for PHP, but on Lighty spawn-fcgi is the de facto standard
for launching a FCGI, so don't see how it could be PHP-specific...
unless you are asserting Lighty can only host PHP FCGI apps?
