...possible to adapt an MPM such as perchild, or one of the various third
party MPM's, to do user-by-vhost or user-by-auth'ed user.

On Unix any user can be impersonated, on Win32 kernel processes can't
impersonate without an impersonation (login) token.  So mod_auth_sspi,
by logging the user through the NT auth database, has a token it can use
to impersonate on the thread for the duration of the request.
