Can anyone *really* explain opcode caching with PHP?

php-fpm (far better that the fastcgi embedded server) is in the core from
a couple of php releases (even if not compiled-in by default and somewhere
marked as experimental) but you will find tons of users of it.

uWSGI got proper php support from a couple of weeks, but it has the
advantage in having years of python/perl/lua hosting, so it has a very
solid core. Is its php plugin stable ? I would be a fool in saying that
after only two weeks, but i suggest you to maintain an eye on it :)
