You are probably not going to find anything.  IBM HTTP Server 1 (based 
on Apache 1.3) might have some of the functionality you want.  Sun's 
distro of Apache might have something.

Generally, you're not going to find the specific features you want with 
a free product like Apache (frankly, I would not trust it even if you 
did ;-) ).  That's the reason proprietary web servers like Netscape 
Enterprise Server (now called SunONE web server, I think) exist.
