Apache can keep a pool of threads around with a single listener
process.  It hands individual threads work to do by passing them
file descriptors over a pipe.  At least, that's what I seem to
recall it does, or did 10 - 12 years ago the last time I read up
on how Apache worked.

Passing sessions between instances of Screen would require a similar
process.  You'd need to hand the fd for the tty from one Screen to
another, perhaps with additional metadata (scroll history, perhaps?).

That's the relevance.
