Take a look at apr_pool_data_* API's, that should provide you all of the
context and persistence you need.

You will never see anything about servers, connections or requests because
this is running in the *parent*, it is blissfully unaware of specific requests
and is therefore immune from being hijaaked by remote code execution and less
severe but destabilizing attacks on the request processing code itself.
