That has been done already, for what I can do there is even an open
report about GD (which is solved as of 5.3.0+ :).

About embed, I also think it is prematur to bring it to a stable
package. It needs some changes to be useful (for ex. split init
functions so it can be used with embedded server more efficiently).
Maybe a good start would be to contribute directly to PHP and add some
tests for this SAPI. Once we reached a stable state, distros can then
consider to bring it to their users.
