Valid points.  But suppose the question was not:

	"How many apache servers are there out there?"

but rather:

	"How many people choose to have their information hosted
	on an apache server?"

Checking for 'same IP' is relatively easy and worth considering.  We may
be able to give an answer to:

	"How many Apache server's are used in Virtual Hosting mode?"

There are bound to be faults, the moreso in our own interpretation, which is
why we've published as much as we can. People with better analytical minds, or
with different points of view should be able to make what they will of this

Incidentally, I'd have published this myself on COMMA if I'd been unable to
find support with the current host site.  If nothing else, I feel that this
information in its raw state can be of great use to software developers.
