No, they have not blessed it.

Yes, that is so.  You need to configure a SPEC CGI independently from 
mod_specweb99.  Fortunately this is only a tiny fraction of the workload.

In spite of the low frequency of CGI requests, I've seen multiple zombie CGI 
processes hanging around quite often.   Bill S. had a fix for 
apr/unix/pools.c::free_proc_chain not too long ago that might help with the 
zombies.  Switching to a compiled CGI as Dave suggested wouldn't hurt either.
