Backward compatibility is not a valid excuse, thats why I proposed the switching
mechanism. It bypasses that issue and provides a compatibility layer to work
more intuitively with software. Even a VIRTUAL_DOCUMENT_ROOT would at least let
admins do some intelligent rewriting.

Its obvious the mod_vhost_alias was not thought out in this context, why is
there so much resistance to maybe adding the variable or the switch? All other
commands understand VirtualDocumentRoot but no one thought to fix it in a
mod_vhost context.

We all know that the 3rd party developers are not going to change this as they
are not well-versed in apache and write code that runs on many webservers (thats
why they write in Perl and PHP and Java). That to me means we should do our best
to accomodate them and update vhost_alias so that it functions properly.

Its a bug, no one wants to admit it though :)

If someone else made such a fix would there even be acceptance of it by the
apache team? Or are hearts hardened and this is seen as not a bug but a 'feature'.

I'm about ready to pay a bounty to get this resolved.
