yeah, that's one thing I thought it could be used for. My take on this
would be to break out the separate directives so you have

ServerRoot (this is the master server directory that http.conf is in)


etc, but I think my long term proposal is an all round better solution
that makes this trivial. It gets into the heart of the server though which
is why implementing it wouldn't be trivial.
