    Anyone know if there is any performance difference between compiling PHP modules into PHP versus as a shared .so module that is loaded via the php.ini?

    Would suEXEC Worker mode make a difference in this, since it creates new PHP processes instead of forking them?

    Am wondering if it is worth it to compile into PHP the most often used modules like imagick and then load less often used modules loaded via .so per each client's needs. Or if it is ok to load every single module as an .so.
