The simplest option is to simply reuse the features that already exist
to get that effect:
http://wiki.apache.org/httpd/Recipes/Different_UserIDs_Using_Reverse_Proxy

It's never going to be as fast as perchild, since it uses
"inefficient" http for the dispatching. But it will beat the pants off
of an mpm that serves only one connection per process at the expense
of slightly more memory.

It would be nice if that could be accomplished with a single instance
of httpd and a single config file. Implementing that would probably be
simpler than solving the perchild problems.
