We can do something like that. The only methods that feeds back any data
to Apache are SendResponseFromMemory, SetResponseHeader, SetStatusCode,
SetStatusLine, Flush and Close.

The system could works the following way:
- Apache calls mod_mono with the Request Data.
- mod_mono makes a Request object with the data needed and pass the flow
  control to ModMono.
- ModMono will send Request to one ASP server through Remoting.
- The ASP server will control the connection with the client and will
  serve the pages requested...

I don't know if we can gain any performance with this design. The main
feature I search with this design is to get off the internal calls to
