Lightbulb Wordpress, permissions, mod-php, suphp


On one of my sites I'm running Wordpress. It is also configured with an FTP user.
Wordpress has the ability to update files from its admin panel. But here's the problem: suPHP is much slower than Mod_PHP. Mod_PHP is much faster, but it runs everything as user www-data! So when using mod-php I have to chmod the dir to www-data:www-data and everything runs fast BUT I can't update the software and I can't login with FTP, but with Suphp the site is so slow that it actually locks down....

Guys, I need your advice on this! What should I do?
