Glad you think so :-)

BTW, something I have been thinking about but haven't investigated yet
is mass SSL vhosting. Demon uses IP vhosting for historical reasons
but other than that the main reason to do things that way is SSL. It
would be cool to get mod_ssl to magically find a vhost's certificate
on the fly in a similar manner to mod_vhost_alias and the document
root. I haven't got my head round SSLeay yet so this idea probably
won't happen until Demon decide they want to do SSL vhosting, unless
anyone else wants to do it...
