在生产中使用PHP内置服务器

I was recently curious about PHP 5.4's built-in webserver. On the surface it seems as though, while rather barebones, with enough work it could be possible to distribute PHP applications that traditionally depend on a separate web server, like WordPress, as standalone scripts that you could just run with php -S localhost:80 app.php (or, more likely, './wordpress.sh'). They might even ship with their own PHP interpreter that has all the features the application needs, which would obviate the need for targeting many different versions of the language.

It's re-inventing the wheel somewhat, but it would certainly increase portability and reduce complexity for the end user.

However, I saw the following on the documentation page:

This web server was designed to aid application development. It may also be useful for testing purposes or for application demonstrations that are run in controlled environments. It is not intended to be a full-featured web server. It should not be used on a public network.

This would obviously refer to issues like proper filesystem security and serving the correct HTTP headers, which can be worked through. However, is there more to it? Are there inherent security concerns and/or technical limitations with using PHP's built-in web server in a production environment that can't be worked around? If so, what are they?
