Yes.  I don't know of anyone successfully using perchild.  There is another
group working on a successor called something like mpmmux, but they've
been rather quite too.

Not with its current design.  For one thing, it needs to have a pool of
child threads available for each possible user, which would make it rather
inappropriate for a large number of users.  For another thing, it
currently only supports different users on a per-vhost basis.   But I
suppose that last restriction would be easy enough to relax.
