With the Gnu compilers, you should be able to do this now; you can
link Ada code with the Apache C code. You need to write a good binding
to the Apache module API. You also have to teach the makefiles about
Ada; not very hard.

With gcc 3.2, it's even easier, since GNAT is part of the same
distribution as the rest of gcc.
