  It helps the average user trying to install a complicated Linux
system.  There's enough things to configure elsewhere without worrying
about the web server, and "localhost"" is always a good IP address.

  I've always wondered why the default Apache configuration wasn't set
up for localhost.  Doing so would allow you to make & run it without
editing anything.  Going to would get you a "yes
you've got Apache running" page.

  This would also make it easier to include administration CGI's with
the standard distribution, allowing people to do the old
point-'n-click for the rest of their configuration.

( I've been lurking for a while now, so I thought it was time to jump
in.  I'm interested in authentication/security, and have written at
least one module, to authenticate via an external RADIUS server. )
