Installing php5 on Ubuntu requires apache2?

When I wanted to install lighttpd today I added php5 to the apt-get install. But then it would tell me that apache2 and numerous other packages would also get installed.

Turns out that instead of php5 I actually wanted php5-cgi. And this was confusing me a lot.
