Depends; if it's a perl script (and there's no mod_perl involved) it can
definitely be a make/break. Wanna see pictures of melted servers? *whips

I've not tried this (and don't honestly have the time right this second;
today's shaping up to be an interesting one), but if mod_perl were an
option, you may be able to use it to craft a module that did this. Of
course, if you're not already running it, installing it at this point
may be more trouble than it's worth. Additionally, if performance is
such a consideration, then a I'd agree that a small apache module would 
probably be the way to go here.
