it ought to work, but it should be setting a per-server cleanup instead of a
per-request cleanup.  see below.

no, but per-request cleanups do require a request object.

what you're asking for here is significantly different than what you did in
your first bit of code - setting a server cleanup handler will run your
subroutine when the server exits, which happens on restarts for example.

basically cleanups are performed when memory allocated for different parts
of the server lifecycle is destroyed.  so, httpd allocates memory for the
server, per-configuration, per-connection, and per-request.  setting up a
cleanup handler on each will run the handler whenever the memory pool goes
out of scope.
