In fact it`s a really good and simple solution for future in apache style.
Unfortunately, I cant understand why apache developers don`t want to do that
patch quick and quite.

Apache developers must rewrite a lot of code of modules because them
incompatible as matter of fact. Just try to use VirtualDocumentRoot
(mod_vhost_alias) with mod_rewrite or mod_vhost with mod_ssl. They write
mod_ssl_vhost_alias but not rewrite mod_vhost_alias to understand mod_ssl
because back-compatibility.

2 Apache developers:
Guys. It`s a life. If you write bad code, rewrite them as fast as you can or
close it, because tomorrow will be worse! Remember IE6. And if you cant
understand me: all hates IE now, and not only version 6.
