You could probably issue a subrequest in a CGI program running under
Apache::Registry, though I'm unsure how to go about capturing the output
of a subrequest.  However, it would probably be easier to use
Apache::Filter with your own Perl handler:

PerlModule Apache::Filter
PerlModule Apache::Icon
PerlModule Apache::AutoIndex
PerlModule Apache::MyHandler

<Location /addindex>
  PerlSetVar Filter On

  SetHandler perl-script
  PerlTransHandler Apache::AutoIndex::transhandler
  PerlHandler Apache::AutoIndex Apache::MyHandler

Then your handler can take the output of Apache::AutoIndex and do whatever
it likes to it in the same manner as Apache::SSI.  The perldoc for
Apache::Filter shows you just how to do this.
