Absolutely.  I'm writing this away from my office, so please forgive my

Setup the PHP executables and supporting files in separate directories.  
Then, in your httpd.conf file, duplicate your PHP handlers (you know,
AddHandler, Action, etc).  Have one group process, for example, .php
pointing to the php5 dir and the other process .htm files pointing to the
php4 directory.
