Perhaps perchild can be improved further to have a set of listener
processes/threads, under the generic apache user id or another secured id,
which accepts connections but does not process them.  These threads then
pass the connections on to the correct user-owned child id via the named
sockets, allowing these child users to have no listening sockets at all
(except the unix domain socket).
