This isn't close to a users@ list question.  There is also a modules-dev
mailing list at the httpd project which discusses the c language sources,
the API and is more in tune with what you are asking.

You would want to look at one of the MPM implementations under server/mpm/
and replace/revise it to run in process.  It's a non-trivial exercise but
certainly is possible.
