in thread issues with module versions

You're right it will consume more memory, but most of this memory is shared (well, in *nix land it is, even in some OSes have problems reporting shared memory).

You can reduce the number of apache children (and db connections) you need per application by running a simple lightweight proxy in front.

    Yes, I know... httpd scaling has some limitations, especially, when non-shared part of httpd-children takes ~15M (which is not good state, I know).
    Imagine, that two similar legacy applications run under Apache, using the same db and sharing some perl modules. But, acidentally, one of them uses old version of MyFamily::Session and the second uses newer version of this package...
