I've had to use the same hack in mod_aspdotnet.

But be certain it's truly static, process lifetime scope data that you
are storing there.  Most of the time, it's wrong to persist through the
graceful restarts and so forth.  In my aspdotnet implementation, though,
it's not possible to tear down the MS .NET engine, so it's easier to leave
one instance running for the lifetime of the process.
