Yes, I did spend some time trying to think of a more succinct name for
the module but failed, so the names remained long. I figured it didn't
matter too much because they only appeared a few times, and I prefer
to avoid cryptic names.

Well, IMO vhost_alias_mode is short enough, and vhost_alias_conf is OK
for a module with no per-dir configuration things.

Alternatively, I'd prefer a global replacement of vhost_alias with mva
rather than the not-quite-everything it currently has (e.g. the enum
constants and vhost_alias_set*).
