The documentation is correct, providing you're using mod_fastcgi. If you're using mod_fcgid, the script name you give is correct. The docs need to be clarified about this distinction.

The way the documentation is formulated in the patch seems to be okay to me. As to the technical content, I'm afraid that I don't know enough about that type of deployments.
