I'm sure you can have multiple connections between a client and the server, as 
long as every connection is on a separate process (which is highly likely to 
be the case in your application).

If you are using the "threaded" version of mod_perl, I would be very worried 
right now. But if you're on a forking version, you'll be ok.

(And I very much doubt you're on the threaded one.. it was never seriously 
usable, although probably due to Perl threading issues rather than its own)
