You may want to look at some developer docs like:

I'm not an expert in this topic, but what you want doesn't sound
feasible.  In the Apache httpd architecture, threads or processes get
to listen on the accept queue and grab new requests as they come in. 
If they read a request and decide it is low priority and they don't
want to handle it, there is really no way for them to shove it back on
the queue.  They are stuck with it and must either serve it or dump
