Not really, guess one could come close with
a lot of time and much coding.

But Windows Scripting, using VBScript or
JScript or whatever language you write to
work with cscript.exe will run using the default,
no changes, of Apache for Windows.

For CGI any language can be used, try this:

#!cscript.exe //nologo path\to\file.vbs

Nice try.

The how-to add scripting usage to programs
is available on MSDN, so start writing "The Mod".

Start by learning Windows Scripting usage
with Apache web server and then add your
new mod scripting Apache functions.

Or just use the many .NET ways.
