I have never done this.  Hooks and handlers are executed sequentially, 
though:  each request is handled by a single thread, and only one thing 
is happening for a single request at any given point in time.  For your 
other mod_perl related questions, please ask on the mod_perl users' 
mailing list.

As Eric pointed out, the main advantage of mod_perl is if you're already 
very comfortable with Perl or very uncomfortable with C.
