Any reason not to split perl filtering?

Single threaded innd is simply not keeping up with the incoming volume,
and the obvious trouble spot is the perl filter. I have one CPU 98% used
and the rest idle, is there any reason not to move filtering into a
separate process to use some extra power. Looks cheaper than buying a
new system :-(

Has anyone done this, and if so are there records of how it worked or
why it didn't?

The actual reading of the articles is the next target, but the perl
filter takes way too much CPU!
