This isn't actually much of a problem with mod_caml.  Deployments of
Apache should limit the number of HTTP requests that a single Apache
child can handle (MaxRequestsPerChild), after which the child exits.
This parameter is commonly set low with mod_perl also, since Perl has
several "issues" with running over long periods of time - it was
designed for short command line scripts after all.
