Hmmm, when I have tried mixing PHP in the same directory and used
apache.DECLINED to throw back unhandled requests to Apache, the PHP
file wouldn't get processed by the PHP module and instead the raw
file would be returned. Thus it has been necessary to have:

   <Files *.php>
   SetHandler None

This was though on Apache 1.3 and I haven't tried it on Apache 2.0.
