I should have left well-enough alone.  But no, I had to go and re-install, so I
could see what suexec's flags were.  This is what Redhat is/was shipping as the
default compile flags:

./suexec -V
 -D AP_DOC_ROOT="/var/www"
 -D AP_GID_MIN=500
 -D AP_HTTPD_USER="apache"
 -D AP_LOG_EXEC="/var/log/httpd/suexec.log"
 -D AP_SAFE_PATH="/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin"
 -D AP_UID_MIN=500
 -D AP_USERDIR_SUFFIX="public_html"

Which, according to your documentation at:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/suexec.html

especially the part that says:
 If you have virtual hosts with a different UserDir for each, you will need to
define them to all reside in one parent directory; then name that parent
directory here.

and take that and make that part of the faq.  Also, point out (somewhere?) that
the remapping (aliasing it out of the ~name expansion) means that suexec doesn't
take any consideration as to the running of the scripts, as far as I can tell. 
This, in and of itself, might be a bug, but I leave that for some of you
security heads.
