    Actually, no.  Maybe I haven't thought this through very well, but I
    was thinking more along the lines of

     CanServeConfigFiles {on|off}

    I expanded the concept, to myself as I was falling asleep [in bed,
    fortunately ;-], to include other config files.  As a side effect,
    this could address the issue of someone being able to stick a
    "SetHandler server-info" in an .htaccess file.

    Just a random thought, no doubt the result of synaptic activity
    triggered by last night's Solar flare whizzing through the
    bubble-chamber atop my shoulders.. <g>
