The easiest way to do this would be to run a dedicated httpd process for 
each application (forming your "pool"), and then combine them into one 
website using a standard reverse proxy configuration.

There wouldn't be much need for any custom code to do this.

The advantage of this technique is that your "application pool" can be 
any kind of server you like - Apache, IIS, JBoss, whatever.
