Ah, you didn't say it was going to be running under mod_perl. Since you were 
saying it needed to be deployment-agnostic and be able to run under whatever 
vhost required, I was expecting you to be using a FastCGI script in the vhost 
directory somewhere.

If you're wanting to do that with a single process, I'd subclass 
C::M::DBIC::Schema and make it create a $schema for each database, then select 
which one to return at ACCEPT_CONTEXT time based on the $c.
