With suexec you need the binary that is to be run as the user to be owned
by the user.  That means you need a seperate binary for each user.  That
means you need a seperate script for your Script directive.  That means ou
that means you need a seperate section; we would need something like:

<Directory /~(.*)/.*>
Script PUT /~$1/putscript.cgi
