Yeah, but why waste time and efficiency? Currently I am involved in Midgard
CMD project and at the very begining we choosed ows PHP API as well as DB
layer and we gained a boost that lets our CMS run on heavily loaded sites.

I'd suggest a vpopmail PHP extension with deamon communication layer. So
that operations would be performed on lower level and would be free from
lazy programmer faults. Most of PHP apps are non-efficient because of bad
implementation of basic procedures like SQL calls, file handling etc.
