What steps are needed to get rid of it?

imho, it's mandatory, as z3950 may be very slow, so we need to have asynchronous requests.

How slow? Slower than the normal apache maximum runtime?

Possible.
but that's not the problem : if enters 4 z3950, we shouldn't wait for 4 synchronous answers before sending him something. It would need 4-8 seconds. the daemon solution gives a "blank screen" to the user, saying "Koha is working", then answers are shown as soon as they arrive.

It's more a human patience problem than a Apache one :-)

Is it possible to run one per server instead of one per koha installation?

The daemon use koha.conf file to find DB, user & password. I don't know how to change this behaviour & have more than 1 .conf file.

Is there an obvious reason not to use sockets and give the daemon its own database config?

I don't know. Probably not. Ask steve Tonnesen ?
