Is there any Apache hook that gets called when thread exits (similar to "child_init" hook, but the opposite)?

If not, do you know of a way of achieving such functionality without modifying Apache? I need to do some cleanup of stuff to which I keep pointers in "global" config structure (this is not memory, so don't tell me to use pools).

Apache 1.3 has a child_exit hook, with apache 2 you're registering a cleanup function via apr_pool_cleanup_register() in a Child_init hook (e.g. mod_log_config); that is the same in therms of functionality.
