AFAIK there's no support for such thing in apache. Have a look
yourself in server/mpm/worker/worker.c.

You can hook create_connection (the first hook offered by apache in a
thread after its creation). However, create_connection is called
several times during the life of a thread, so you'll need some boolean
to check if you've already initialised the thread-specific data.
