Only from reading the description, I would say that you will need to 
extend the mpm to meet your needs. You need asynchronous processing to 
be triggered by a module, Event MPM does async for specific core cases.

My earlier spiel was about a possible technique that you could use.
Instead of creating a new thread pool as you were suggesting earlier - 
you could just reuse the "worker" thread pool - with the most time 
intensive activity  - waiting for i/o handed off to 1 single dedicated 
thread, freeing the workers to handle other requests.

Also, hacking your own mpm may not work in your case if you are shipping 
a module to others.
