Why would you need multiple php.ini files?
You should be able to avoid any errors by making sure that your files aren't world writable. This usually only happens when clients make their files world writable and then LATER the server is switched to suphp.
I'd go with suphp, it keeps things simpler for customers as they don't have to worry about permissions as much.
