Subject yuck...need help with suEXEC.

I started coding in my proposed fix to suEXEC this morning...and I had a
nasty realization.

I have machine with multiple VHosts...each with their own UID/GID...*BUT*
what if I had a different UserDir for each.  That means that I have
multiple possiblities as to what ~userdir will translate. 

If I have hosts and userdirs of:

	www.bcc.louisville.edu		www
	www-test.bcc.louisville.edu	www-test
	ftp.bcc.louisville.edu		ftp
	radbio.bcc.louisville.edu	radbio

Suddenly the ~userdir issue becomes *MUCH* more complex.

The only fix I think of would be to have a directory *above* all of these
directories which would be considered the beginning of userdir webspace.
For example, what if I had:

	www.bcc.louisville.edu		www/www
	www-test.bcc.louisville.edu	www/www-test
	ftp.bcc.louisville.edu		www/ftp
	radbio.bcc.louisville.edu	www/radbio

Is there anything in the UserDir code that would prevent such a
translation to a subdirectory?  If not, we should patch this as well...
