This article is now at 
http://www.svay.com/blog/index/post/2009/06/19/Face-detection-in-pure-PHP-%28without-OpenCV%29 (for some reason, omitting the www. brought up an error 
page).

Can I bump this? It'll make finding faces in my wedding photos a LOT easier :D

I hardly think this is a "fallback" PHP implementation.  It requires 
the GD library to be built into PHP, which is not done by default.

  It's a fallback in the sense that it doesn't require any of the 
other libraries for face detection to be installed (OpenCV or 
Facedetect). This could also probably be ported to use 
imagemagic/imagick - and Ansel does require one of those to be present 
anyway...

Any face related code would need to have patches provided, or be sponsored.
