I think you got already the answer to your question.

If C would be helpful, writing an Apache module could be a solution. You 
module could then be linked with Apache. I would use this only as the 
last resort.

When we use C with Apache we do not use any other scripting language. 
This allows us to remove things which make Apache big.
