Yes, the new mod_mono_unix works like this.

That should be easy to do. We just need to allow multiple virtual
directory <-> unix socket mappings for mod_mono_unix and then start the
xsp server processes for those directories and the module will forward
the request to the appropiate 'application pool' ;-).

Any taker for this?
