This may or may not make sense in your application,
but have you considered using the proxy framework?
That might involve a mod_proxy_yourprotocol to handle
the tcp requirements.  Your main module would then
create a proxy subrequest when it needs a connection.

See mod_include for an example, where
<!--#include virtual ...> uses a proxy subrequest to
make an HTTP connection.
