Technically speaking, if you just use <VirtualHost> then Apache
binds to *.80.  Which also means that you cannot then run another
Apache with a different uid also using <VirtualHost>.

Anyone care?  Anyone looked at patching Apache so you could list
multiple BindAddress's (possibly in the <VirtualHost> section) to
get around this?
