Tradeoff, huh?  If I understand it correctly, you can't keep the files 
outside the docroot if you're using mod_php b/c the web server itself is 
what fetches the file (therefore it needs to be in the docroot).  But 
mod_php is faster than CGI PHP and can handle more simultaneous 
requests.  Right?
