modperl1 (which I suppose you've looked at), as it seems you have 
realized, doesn't implement perl pools and the code is quite a mess.

mod_perl 2 does implement perl interpreter pools and the code is very 
clean and relatively clear (though could use more internal docs). Check 
the modperl_interp.[ch] in src/modules/perl in the mp2 distro:
