I know this is a late response, but I haven't seen anybody point this out
yet: that's 1 connection *per Apache child process*, since each process
still has to have its own connection.

Potentially, if you have Apache configured to run 100 children or more.  If
you configure it to run only 50 children, that's the maximum number of
Oracle connections you will get.
