Yup, and this is exactly how I have it working right now.  Each module
starts by re-instantiating $dbh and $htdocroot via dir_config and a
function that uses dir_config to find the database it's supposed to grab
stuff from.

The problem is that it seems like I've incurred a pretty high speed
penalty, and my requests/sec have dropped from about 165 to 83 :(  I'm
still pushing enough data to saturate a T1, so at the end it's not 
going to be a noticable difference.  I wanted to know if there was a
better/faster way to do this though, without having to call $r->dir_config
and $r->document_root for /every/ request.
